    Opti lens yellow liquid?

    liquid still, no gel consistency. Just looks a bit tanned color. A shame about the color since I did keep it indoors and out of light too.

    Opti lens yellow liquid?

    I did 1 set of headlights about 2-3 years ago with opti lens. I was still new to using the coatings back then. The blue tip I had to throw away because I didn’t clean it out properly and it hardened. Now im looking at the opti lens in the tube and it looks a slight tint of yellow as opposed to clear like water. is the opti lens no good anymore? want to upload a photo on iPhone to show you guys but I’m limited in upload size
  9. I read somewhere that it is perfectly ok to use the BRS with car soap?
  10. I know in alot of OPT polishing videos, the pad washer is used which contains ONR and the videos show Levi priming the polisher pad up with ONR, and spun to dry before putting on hyper polish/hyper compound. I am not using a pad washer and was planning on just using hyper polish/hyper compound on the pad, polish one panel, and then do a quick "on the fly" cleaning of the pad using a terry cloth towel. Just like in this video. I use a Meguiars G110v2 DA polisher. I read from this article https://www.detailedimage.com/Ask-a-Pro/pad-cleaning-during-and-after-polishing/ that using ONR is good for cleaning pad on the fly. They spray some ONR on the polisher pad and use a towel to clean the residue off the pad. My question is: - For the sake of consistency between polishing panel #1 and panel #2, should I spray some ONR on the polisher pad before working on panel #1? I'm thinking that the results of polishing might differ between panel #1 and #2 too much because for panel #1 there was no ONR used, but for panel #2 (after cleaning the pad on the fly with ONR) there would be some ONR in the pad.

    Optimum Pad Selection

    Reviving this thread as it seems some info was lost... will the blue pad be enough to get rid of clay bar marring with hyper polish? Is it enough to get rid of opti coat? My assumption for opti coat would be yes... it would get rid of opti coat even on a blue pad.

    Decon wash

    I have been pondering on the decon wash now. What dilution for OPC in a foam cannon? Will it still be effective if mixed with optimum car wash in a foam cannon? Like the Original poster... im wanting to spray the entire car with OPC but dont want to have issues with the glass.
  13. He also has a video about the big red sponge and ONR
  14. this guy seems to know a but and states that pretty much all waxes and sealants dont protect against sun damage if past its temperature or life expectancy of 24 months. what does optimum have to say about this?

    Applying opti seal with microfiber towel

    I find the yellow applicator pad to be too rough/grabby on paint. I havent used dual pro applicator or the blue applicator yet.
