I have sealed around 6 or 7 cars now with Optiseal after doing a wash, decon, and iso wipe. I have tried a few different methods, and each time I get some streaking on the paint as the OOS dries. I have tried priming the pad with a spritz or two, and then doing anywhere from 1 - 2 spritz's per panel, depending on size. I have also tried spraying just into the pad, and then rubbing that around on the panel. Is there a better way that would prevent the streaks? I heard of someone putting a nitrite glove over the foam applicator and using that to spread the OOS, so that it doesn't absorb into the pad, is that dumb?
Second part of the question, assuming I have some light streaking afterwards, what is the best way to remove. I usually wipe with a microfiber, but it doensn't get all of the streaking, at least easily. Some of it take some decent pressure, and I don't always feel comfortable doing that. Would a spritz of detailing spray or Opti Clean help remove any residue?
Please advise for best practices. And to preemptively answer questions, I dont' believe I am using too much. I use 1 spritz for each fender, door, quarter panel, and hatch, and then 2 spritz for the hood, bumpers, and roof.
