    Decamination then hyperseal first time

    Yup your Wright Ron product comes out like a garden hose lol. My car has large panales and roof but still a mist would be easier to spread especially on wheel rims don't have a empty opti seal yet put will try a regular optimum sprayer from the wax maybe Used some optimum compound and polish on the foggy headlights all good used the hyperseal for protection

    Decamination then hyperseal first time

    Hyper Seal is a favorite of mine, but the sprayer allows too much product IMO, is wasteful and causes streaking. I transferred my HS into an old Opti-Seal bottle and delivery is just right.

    Decamination then hyperseal first time

    a lot of work, but a successful decontamination! Polish should be enough to clear the fogging.
  7. Just finished Decamination of the car has been gloss coated last year and has a few coats of wax and a couple of coats of optiseal on it Washed car with chemical guys citrus soap used about six ounces in a foam cannon thought this would take care of wax nope this is the only non opti product i used powerclean 3 to 1 Used ik sprayer agitated with one microfiber soaked in onr then rinse Mdr 3 to 1 in a ik sprayer then agitated with micro fiber soaked in onr then rinse Ferex bottom of car around wheels front bumper back bumper then rinse Had to work fast I was in the sun but managed to keep the car wet. I could see the beading off water changing as the car was stripped of wax optiseal and detail spray Paint prep realy used alot the car was sqeaky clean the silver metallic paint shined gloss coat was still there Hyper seal first time using it started with roof used the sprayer it came with put it on till it started to streak then used a bit less I put in on like wax if it streaked then just buffed it a bit Very mirror like finish with more gloss then any optimum product I have used Wax waited about one and a half hours there was dust on the car so I used some onr in ik sprayer on car then dryed and waxed one panal at time . Got a little more of a wet look that a like very happy with results This car is weekly washed so was pretty clean so I did not let the products sit on car to long pluse I was in the sun but not hot 18 c i was wrong I could see alot of dirt come off with the powerclean . The only screw up was my headlights got fogged up pretty good I guess from the power clean mdr or some ferex that i did not rinse off . Tried strait power clean no luck so i will get the polisher out and some optimum polish may be even compound . Any suggestions welcome.

    Hello from Pittsburgh

    Thank you Ron and Habs for the insight on not needing Opti-Seal. The vehicles will be garaged immediately so all should be fine! I'll be doing my dad's F150 as my test vehicle since I purchased the 20cc syringe, but I'll make sure I keep this thread updated with pictures of the results. Can't wait for the Gloss Coat and Hyper Polish to arrive so I can get to work

    ONR as tire dressing?

    When I said opti seal can be used as a protectant I meant I meant I used it for exterior and interior plastics and leather. I never used it on tires and I dont intend to.
  11. Ron@Optimum

    ONR as tire dressing?

    On the other hand, I use ONR as an interior cleaner every wash. It's not a "dressing" and I usually follow up with Protectant Plus as a treatment for leather and plastic. I have used Opti-Seal on damaged interior vinyl to darken it and reduce future UV fading....never tried on tires.

    ONR as tire dressing?

    I was thinking the same...other then that ONR will clean the black plastics I dont really see ONR doing much else. Its not a dressing. Now Im not just saying this without trying it. I did use ONR today on some black plastics. I used it neat on a mf applicator and "dressed" the plastics and other then that it just cleaned it I diddnt see it do anything much to plastics...no blackening, no difference whatsoever. It looked stock as I expected it to be in the first place. Opti seal on the other hand can be used as a protectant. That leaves behind a protected slick antistatic surface that actually beads water quite nicely.

    ONR as tire dressing?

    depending on what you expect from a tire dressing - other than cleaning, I don't see any durability or much shine from ONR on tires.

    Thank you

    I cleaned a total of 15 cars today, using just two 3 gallon and one 1 gallon ONR W&S solutions and the BRS. Cleaned cars sitting on a dealer lot, all pretty dusty/dirty, from several months of no cleaning, and it was a hot day. After cleaning about 5 dirty cars with it, the black-hole look-a-like ONR solution didn't perform very well on a baking hot black car in the sun haha. Who would have thought! My fastest car, a Ford Ka from 2004, took me Approx 8 min.! I didn't clean the wheels and on some cars I did 'spot-repair' (cleaning stubborn parts of dirt). I basically clean the whole car with the BRS, (Yes the car dries almost completely due to the sun and the heat, leaving polymer spots.) then take a damp cloth and a dry MF towel. For windows and hot dark-coloured cars in the sun, with a dirty solution,I use both towels. With brighter cars, the damp cloth was sufficient for drying without smears! Awesome stuff!!!!
  16. I always rinse the car with hose before i do any thing . Onr is not waterless wash as far as I know my car is gloss coated and optimum wax and opti seal 80 % of the dirt comes of with the hose then soak car with onr with ik or weed sprayer then onr wash . I also like to use foam on the realy dirty parts as well. Coming back from fishing once the car was realy a mess I rinsed the car sprayed the hole car with onr and then put optimum soap on top with foam cannon and then washed with several mitts soaked in onr it kills the foam a bit but wow its very slippery soulution .

    To presoak or not presoak? ONRww

    my cars never get that dirty so i’ve played around with pre soaking vs pre rinsing vs nothing and the results are roughly the same in the end, ive stuck with pre rinsing with a hose just because it’s the quickest method and knocks off the most annoying debris (live bugs, residual leaves, etc) my routine before i start a wash is to rinse the car off, foam power clean (1:3) from an ik foamer to the lower part of the car and in particular the wheels and exhaust, rinse off and then bring the car in for an indoors rinseless wash

    Optimum Synergy Podcast M.I.A.

    That explains the many threads where it looks like people were getting answers to questions yet I couldn't find any of those answers reading between the question posts and the thank you posts.

    Hello from Pittsburgh

    hi travis you will love the gloss coat. i have used it twice and never used opti seal on it after. had no problems. I found the second time i used gloss coat after polish i used lots of optimums paint prep i really wiped it down made a big difference no high spots the product just flows better and on there thicker every product i used was optimum except pads could not get them . i am no pro but i am better now being on this form one thing that is great and makes it easy is how optimums products all work together one on top of the other i have got a hold of some optimum hyper seal cant wait to see it on top of my gloss coat have fun
  20. I meant prespray by presoak. I use a portable washer which I fill with ONR and rinse the entire car down before using the BRS and bucket. https://www.snowjoe.com/products/sun-joe-wa24c-lte-24v-150-psi-max-multi-purpose-clean-anywhere-portable-spray-washer-with-5-gal-tank I do this during the winter time when my landlord shuts off the outdoor water supply to prevent the pipes from freezing. But since I have completely moved away from traditional washes just wanted to know if I can skip the prespray/presoak/pre-rinse step.
  21. That was his master plan, first review and suggest products, make people follow and trust you. Then start showing the negative of such said products, then introduce your “Superior” product.

    Hello from Pittsburgh

    Opti-Seal is a safety factor but not necessary, it's only 7 days until you can wash your Coated car.

    Hello from Pittsburgh

    Thanks for the quick response Ron. Without the Opti-Seal do you think keeping the car garaged and spot detailed with ONR is sufficient during the cure period? If not, I've no problem waiting for to get my hands on Opti-Seal....current LSP is doing just fine. Hello Heijneker!
  24. Yes I am the same now since i have completely gone to the dark side lol a quick spray down the dirty areas only takes a minute. Cant see any mobile detailer not doing this .
  25. I watched Scott early on and thought he made good points about the kinds of road pollutants you deal with. I took exception when he tested products, claiming to be unbiased, but always seemed to find fault with Optimum products. Wasn't surprised when he introduced his own line...

    Thank you

    Oh and it makes my hands feel amazing after washing! 😁
