    Anyone know a EU OPT distributor that can ship to other EU countries? Also what happened to Optimum car care NL (Patrick)? Web-site is down!

    General Questions

    PC is at ph 11 so its alkaline and yes it can help clean rims. It should be safe on your wheels just dont let it dry. Safe answer is "wait 90 days" 😊 For wheels you could go for a safer option and just use ferrex/rinse/standard shampoo wash/rinse/dry method. Hyper seal is similar to reload as they are both sio2 sealants. Opti seal is not. In terms of use they are the same but opti seal is more multifunctional as it can also be used for protecting interior plastics / leather / vinyl.
  5. I too was strugling with this. Eventually the tire will get dirty so people will have too clean it with something right? So does using PC remove the coating? If not then what does?

    Just dont let PC dry...
  8. Nice "straight to the point" review ❕ I cant decide which look I prefer...both are nice...maybe the 2 coats look better (it stands out)!

    Gloss coat curing time/temperature

    The second coat can be done within 30-60 min after 1st coat or the coating can be re-applied after time. You just have to wash-decontaminate-panel prep the paint and you are good to re-apply gloss coat.

    Wash n wax

    Depends on the wash&wax shampoo...some will add shine but mask LSP, some will add temporary protection and so on... in short it will definitely change how opti seal behaves.
  11. After...its suppose to "bake it " on and help with durability...Ive read more about this method and the author later admited he didnt see any difference in durability if he applied it the "normal" way or with the heat gun...so I guess it doesnt matter.
  12. I was copying ibiza55 I believe from DW forum...he always comments "lovely jubbly" and I thought it was funny
  13. Ive seen some detailers use a heat gun to "burn in" the tyre dressing (mostly seen this method with Gyeon and carpro products) into the tyre and aparantly it lasts longer...now Ive never tried this but some of you might have. Does it work and does it work with Optibond?

    Could this be applied outside considering temperatures are above 15 deg C. Would dust be an issue?

    Whats the prep work for Clearcoat restorer?

    SEMA 2018

    I kinda got the feeling that clear coat restorer is a kinda paint filler (it can mimic clear coat) that can fill light to deep scratches but can not restore fading clear coat. This is just my guess...Im not trying to be to smart here. Other OPT representatives will have to fully explain and showcase these products so we can get a clearer picture about them. But I must say...they all are very interesting. P.S. Kudos to OPT for creating a paint safe and somewhat health safe tar remover?

    SEMA 2018

    I just bought a full bottle of Opti-bond so I'm not sure if I want the Tyre coating ? The Clay mitt and Paint restorer sure looks interesting. I would love to see it in action.

    Stripping sealants

    A thorough rinse... I would really just hand polish the car with something like poli-seal and seal it with opti-seal if it was me. You would get much more gloss and bonding with that rather than with using power clean and wash & seal.
  22. I would consider Protectant plus as a protectant and not a cleaner. I see it similar to 303 Aerospace protectant. You can use an ONR damp towel to wipe over the interior plastics and leather once every month or so and protect it with Protectant plus.

    Stripping sealants

    Then use any pre-wax cleanser or simply apply opti-seal over your existing sealant. Nothing wrong with adding extra protection to your car.
