    Car wax and opti seal 24month life?

    The guy video is dated 22 August 2017. His video mentioned about the clear-coat's 50% at 5 years and 25% at 10 years. 00:25 of the video. Dr.G from Optimum mentioned something similar on the clear-coat's 50% at 5 years and 25% at 10 years. 17:00 of the pod cast. The podcast is likely to be dated on or before 5 September 2016. Here's the podcast - http://carsyeah.com/ourportfolio/589-david-ghodoussi/ My OCW likely last one or two months and that has UV protection. After that, just repeat the application.
  2. He also has a video on "Can Traffic Film Damage Paint & Will A Wax Stop it?" where he mentioned friction and pressure, especially during rain, will erode the wax film away for daily drivers. I am not exactly sure but it doesn't seem to reconcile with what I've read in fluid mechanics - boundary layer.
  3. The weather for the last few days has been terrible - cloudy or blazing sun in the morning and moderate or heavy rain in the afternoon. A handful of tiny spots of bird poo or some organic nature gets splattered over the car. I was very much reluctant to touch the paint work but I think the spots have to go - soften using water and microfiber clean them. It has since been a week, I finally washed with Optimum Car Wash Concentrate. As I am expecting those tiny spots to invade again, I OCW the roof, bonnet and boot. I hope I can leave the other panels untouched until full hardness. Any idea how to test / check for full hardness ?
  4. I had a detailer done up my Opticoat 2.0 and let it cure for 3 hours under shade. When I drove off, it started to rain again ! When I got home, I light pressure spray with water and dry off using micro fiber. The car spend the next 48-hours under shade. Thereafter, the car has been exposed to rain twice and I would dry it with a microfiber. The weather will be cloudy, hazy and rainy in the days ahead. I just bought the OC Wash, OCW and OID. I had my coating done on Thursday and today is Sunday. I would appreciate for some help and information on how to go about protecting the coating from the elements until full hardening. I am thinking that I just light pressure spray with water and apply OID ? Thanks.
