  13. Optimum MDR

    Thanks Getting some product ordered for spring I want to strip any wax grease salt and any contamination from the winter this product sounds helpful I am thinking Mdr, paint prep, opti seal, then spray wax. What do you think The car is being washed once a week so far had some soap freeze to car but got it off when warmed up Thanks love the products
  14. Ocw

  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. Opti-Coat Application Methods

    Hi I just gloss coated my car in three phases bumper then hood then the rest of car ( had the car in parts in my garage during winter) I put in on thick thin and double coated some of it Never had any problems with high spots i think the method is use the paint prep get the paint as clean as possible ( polish glay) and the right tempature Do you self a favor and gloss coat the car

    Honda element gloss coat waiting to put wax on I think the paint prep is your best product It makes it so easy the gloss coat just flows on did not get any really high spots used the glove and shop towel method I did take 5 hours of prep work though lol Very happy thanks every body for answering all my questions on this form
  21. 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
