  2. OCW layering and cure time

    Hi I put a coat of ocw on every other wash ( I wash car once a week)easy looks great Can you buff this product I miss using my buffer
  3. Lots of streaking after application. :(

    Glad I did not have these problems with my opti gloss coating From what I have read the people that used the opti paint prep did not have any issues I also cleaned cleaned my Paint Washed with dish soap , clayed , polished washed again with opti carwash the paint was squeaky clean then the paint prep I did not have to do any paint correction The opti gloss self leveled no mater what I did thick or thin I really did not do any leveling just a gentle wipe I am no pro but this is the way I thought best from this form and others You have to take your time it's worth it Was clean as could be then the paint prep all done in shade

  7. Optimum Paint Prep

    Yes I think this is there best product I have used gloss coat three times on my car did some new paint first then the hole car then my wheels I put it on thick and thin and doubled coated and it self levels perfectly I am no pro but I think the cleaner the car is the coating flows better makes sense to me Love it

  12. Sticker glue

    I have a silver Honda element with some glue on my painted plastic this car was covered in dealership advertising. I would like to remove it before I use gloss coat any ideas ( clay polish ?)this car also has Hondas aftermarket coating on it on top of the remaining glue Have gloss coated the new paint on hood and front quarter panels and bumper looks great The optimum gloss coat is by far better in every way over the Honda coating Thanks
