Reproofed canvas softtop not beading?

Over the weekend I reproofed the soft top on my 03 MX5 Nevada. I used the Autoglym kit.
Cleaned first, then proofed while still slightly wet ( as per bottle instructions ). Left car inside under a well protected carport for over 24 hours.
Today it is raining on and off, I noticed tiny beads but in the main when heavier rain it still doesnt seem to bead ( with large droplets ) like a previous MX Canvas top I had ( and reproofed also ). In side around the door fringes, above ones head the water is slightly soaking through.
I wonder is the canvas "shot"?
The following picture was pre reproofing:
At least and at the moment since reproofing this IS NOT happening any more, jury is out until we get a good sustained blast of rain.
