  1. My goal wasn't to remove what was left. In a FB discussion with Adam Huber he said I could clean them with Poweclean and re-apply over what was remaining.
  2. Here is a followup. Optimum Tire Protection & Coating (take 2) I think I messed up the prep for Take 1, so trying the again. And I really liked how it looked the 1st time. Prep - Lots of PowerClean Full Strength. Probably 4oz per tire. Scrub, rinsed, scrub , rinsed. Maybe a hint of Tire Coating left after it was scrubbed 2 light coats coats applied with MF towel Pictures are of the same tire for the whole process. Each picture taken 30 mins later Clean - waited 30 mins to fully dry Coat 1 - waited 30 mins, took picture Coat 2 - waited 30 mins, took picture Outside - Next morning http://

    OPTIMUM GELCOAT RESTORER

    Quick question, like CCR, does this have a 30day shelf life after it's open?

    Yvan get's some well deserved respect!

    So I watched this video the other day, and I thought OPC had to be rinsed, always. In all his demos, he never rinsed. Please advise.
  5. Quick question for whomever may know. My other car I did 1 coat all around, and now I think I want to go to 2coats. Can I just clean with PowerClean and redcoat or will it not adhere to the 1st coat?
  6. i’ve never used Tire Coatings. Optimum is one of my favorite brands, so when they announced a coating for Tires I wanted to try it. Too cold to do this outside today so I did it in my garage after a quick ONR wash. My wife’s 2015 Tahoe has about 40k miles on the original tires, we will replace them shortly. I wanted to try both 1 coat and 2 coat application Front Tires = 1 coat (satin) Rear Tires = 2 coats (glazed donut) Prep : Scrubbed with PowerClean 100%, non diluted.. Rinsed with pump sprayer. Scrubbed with Optimum Power Clean rinsed, repeat Power Clean. Dry very well. Consistency : It’s the same consistency as ONR, very liquidy, not like Opti bond. Goes on and turns a blue/purple color. After about 5 minutes it turns clear. For the back tires I waited 30 mins and applied a 2nd coat. Picture included below is the results I’ll follow up with my thoughts in the comments over time.

    2016 SEMA Speculation Thread

    Is this Pro only items? I haven't had time to listen to the Podcast. (minus the white pad)

    2016 SEMA Speculation Thread

    I agree a tweaked ONR should be on-deck. I still have ONR (blue and green) but reach for others sometimes due to the staining issue. I would also like to see them release Primer Polish to consumers for those who use Gloss Coat. Similar to the primer base of Essence for C-Quartz.
  14. I've never really measured, but I bet I use less than 1oz per car. A little goes a long way.

    Optimum Synergy Podcast

    The guys at Optimum started a Podcast. As a longtime OPT fan, I was intrigued. Since I didn't see any other postings out here about it, I figured I'd start one. There are 3 episodes so far. I think they're off to a great start. Show your support and give it a try. You can find them on Itunes and Libsyn , and Google Play. Check them out !
