    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
