    Optimum Compound Hazing

    The compounds job is to cut and cut fast through imperfactions! Its job isnt too look great afterwards...Thats why you have to polish after using a compound (and yes some compounds can be used as 1-step products which cuts and finishes well but depending the paint you are working on (soft, hard, dark, light), your pad choice (hard cutting or soft polishing) and speed at certain situations you are just going to get compound hazing! Test a bit...try the compound with a hard pad for 2 section passes on one area then switch to a polishing pad for 2 section passes on another area and compare which combo removed more swirls and which combo gives you better finish/ reflection / shine.

    The ship might self-combust 🤪
  4. Undiluted opti bond does offer more durability. The tire has to be dry...not moist or wet and I do suggest you do 2 layers. Ive had it now on for 3 weeks and it still looks like just aplied.

    Clear Coat Restorer

    I was thinking...wouid it be better to sand the panel with 3000grit before applying CCR instead of compounding?

    Just some videos I found about the product
  7. Depends on the paint...I suggest you do a test spot. Use the softer pad first and see if you get the correction you want...if its not switch to the courser pad. Hyper polish will in any case give you enough gloss.
  8. If you have a polisher try poli-seal topped with opti seal!!! Great combo with lots of gloss!

    ONR with more "bite"?

    I dont know how I didnt think of this before but you can use opti clean to pre soak before onr wash. That will be stronger then onr alone.

    Worx hydro shot perhaps?

    Opti Coat Pro Maintenance

    In high heat its better to do a panel at a time (wash & dry) but in a wash bay or garage where temps are steady you can wash one entire side of the car and dry that entire side and then move to the other side and do the same so you can wash a larger section of the car before you dry. Thats what I do now in winter and colder days...wash the entire driver side from top to bottom, move to the front, wash the passenger side and lastly do the back of the car. It saves me a lot of time.
