  1. Is this a real thing, if so what is it?
  2. This weeks podcast spends about 30 minutes talking about this new range. No significant details, some of the products appear to be the same as the consumer range but others have been changed eg Opticoat ONR, unfortunately the Hyper Seal was not really discussed as the conversation changed direction when it was about to be explained. It is a shame these products will not be accessible for me, I don't really have an interest in fancy pro coatings but an updated version of ONR or Optiseal is of interest to me
  3. The Guz, meant to ask you your opinions on the Gtech C6 dressing. This has been my favourite interior dressing for several years, plus it seems to be very durable.
  4. Products now listed on Opticoat site, these products do seem to have a price premium compared to the main range, for example Protectant Plus 17oz ($11.99), Opticoat version 16oz ($19.99), Power Clean 17oz ($11.99) Opticoat version 16 oz ($19.99), ONR 32oz ($15.99), Opticoat version 16oz ($19.99) Carpet & Fabric Cleaner 32oz ($24.99) Opticoat version 16oz ($19.99) Hyper seal 16oz ($29.99), Optiseal 8oz ($24.99)
  5. Nice find A&J. Enjoyed watching the videos. Been quite a while since I have seen a razor blade used on paint. One of the interesting evolutions with Hyper sprays was spraying on a moving pad.
  6. I normally just use warm water but it is an interesting idea. Many people do not use hot water as it can lead to water stops and dried shampoo, which should not be a problem for ONR so it would be interesting to hear if other people try it.
  7. It would be nice if OCW and Optiseal could have better durability and I do agree with you, the competition is very strong both in terms of ease of application and durability. I appreciate OPT is focusing on the professional market with lots of nice stuff but the consumer products are the only ones I can buy
  8. Maybe the easiest thing to do would be to remove the commercial link
  9. Interesting.......care to share more information?
  10. As an aside, when an American says he is pissed, it means he is angry. In the UK it means he is very drunk!
  11. Nice work with the Carlack and a perfect example of 'old' but good products can still do a great job, not forgetting the skill of the person using them. A gallon of OCW and OID would probably outlast me
  12. Sounds like some MDR is exactly what you want.
  13. Yes, there has been a lot of changes and improvements but some things remain the same
  14. Ron has spoken a few times about using Optiseal after Gloss Coat so I would take this as officially safe. As for OCW after Optiseal, you can do this anytime you like.
  15. Bence, wow. Nice to see you posting again here
  16. Very glossy
  17. As A&J says above, start with the softest pad
  18. Welcome Marcelo
  19. Thanks for the clarification Ron
  20. Nice work, nice car. Nice to see the Car Wash was used. Not as famous as ONR but simply a nice product which does a good job
  21. I am quite sure Ron said Paint Prep would remove the sealant from the metal polish so it might do the same for poliseal but why go to that much trouble and not just use hyper polish
  22. Read about it being used after opticoat to remove high spots but would assume it would interfere with the bonding if used before. Happy to be corrected
  23. Whilst GPS is a nice product and I will bow down to Ron's knowledge about using it on glass, it is important to recognise the level of cut or abrasion available by hand with GPS. GPS has very mild abrasives and so has limits, it can remove very light swirls but after than you either need a machine or a stronger polish. Using a lot of pressure is likely just to be wasted effort and the problem is unless you are very strong then the amount of effort applied at the start of the process is likely to be far less by the time you have completed the car.
  24. Yes, 3 parts water to 1 part product for OPC, same as 256 parts water to one part water for No Rinse (ONR)
  25. I would use either the Protectent Plus or Tyre Shine which contrary to the name gives a lower gloss than Optibond (full strength) for the dressing or use no dressing at all
