  1. Thats a resurection of an really old thread there buddy...I dont think cptzippy is still around.
  2. All the way from SINGAPORE!

    What exactly are you using and what are you so happy about?
  3. Opti-Lens Headlight Restoration Longevity

    @Setec Astronomy Do you think topping it with OCW would help with the longevity?
  4. Great report Lowe. Ive used the OC & Optiseal mix to remove a bird bomb off my car yesterday. It worked great and left a super slick surface behind.
  5. Give it a go and report back on what you think!

    welcome to the forum... ...pics...pics...pics please
  9. I mixed Opti seal with various OPT cleaning products just to see how they perform together. I mixed: - 50% OPT car wax & 50% opti-seal - 90% ONR at 1:34 mix ratio (180ml water and 5 ml ONR) & 10% opti-seal (20ml) - 90% OID & 10% opti seal - 90% Opti-clean & 10% opti seal After wash I tested them as rinse aids. In short they all work fine but I would add some observations: - Opti seal tends to seperate after time so be sure to shake the mix before use. Opti seal actually floates on top (especcially ontop of OCW). Once you shake it up its OK. - Added Opti seal makes the water bead down the panel giving it a waterfall efect. - Mixing ONR and opti seal is pointless if you are washing the car with ONR. It doesnt save time and IMO it just dillutes opti seal. The drying process feels nicely lubricated though. - Mixing OID and opti seal is great. You get the benefits of gloss enhancers from OID with extra protection from opti seal. Drying seems easier with added opti seal. - Mixing Opti clean and opti seal is also great. Now this is a time saver as you are cleaning and protecting in one go so it saves you one step. The downside is the streakiness from both products which just needs to be buffed off better. - Mixing OCW and opti seal isnt any different from using one or the other product. I diddnt notice any more slickness then normal. The panel wiped off pretty much streak free. I havent tested durability or anything. These are just my observations from one use...perhaps using them over a longer period of time would give more observations / answers. More in the video bellow. I would love to see someone test OCW the same or similar way and post their findings. OCW is sold out in my country so thats something I cant do at the moment. Comment below and thanks for watching!
  10. I think this quote from opti-coat.com store holds the answer to my question: "With regular use, the added fluoropolymers will repel airborne heavy metal pollution and maintain the coated surface free of bonded contamination..." Once every 6-8 weeks should be reasonable.
  11. Dont know the benefits from M-wash over Car wash but if you can get 32oz of Car wash for less money than 16 oz. of M wash I dont know whats the point in using M wash. Car wash is a great car shampoo. There is nothing wrong with it.
  12. NO...using other manufacturers products will ban you from this forum Of course you can...use whatever you like if it works for you.
  13. All this talk about ONR drying on the surface and stuff...I avoid it all together by simply washing & drying the car panel by panel (or sometimes after washing 2-3 panels I procede to use OID or Opti seal and dry). I never had any issue that way. I never wash the entire car before I dry it.
  14. Opti-Clean & OCW?

  15. Opti-Clean & OCW?

    It would be interesting if someone tested and compared mixing: - 10% Opti-seal to 90% ONR at QD dilution - 10% OCW to 90% ONR at QD dilution - 10% OCW to 90% OID - 10% Opti-seal to 90% OID - 10% OCW to 90% Opti clean - 10% Opti-seal to 90% Opti clean 10% is just a reference point...it could be more or less. I volunteer for the 3 Opti seal mixes! Anyone else wanna have a go?
