  1. Great thanks Ron! I'm looking forward to using the "Magic Product" per Dan William's.
  2. Awesome, good to know. I've ordered some to try. How long can I expect the protection to last? How would one remove the protection if needed?
  3. I'd like to protect a current carpet that is already relatively clean. Is this a good use for this product? How does it compare to protection only products? It seems more like a super cleaner then a protector. Just wondering!

    Where does MDR fall in a coating prep workflow?

    Sorry for all the posts, I found out why MDR killed my coating, CQuartz has a ph resistance scale of 3-11. MDR has a ph of 2.65

    Ron, would a MDR dwell time of say 20 mins hurt Glosscoat?

    Per Yvan before if you use a light / fine clay like the Optimum clay towel it doesn't mar so no need to worry about polishing.

    Where does MDR fall in a coating prep workflow?

    I used a foam applicator with MDR, applied to the paint, let it sit for a 2-3 minutes, washed off. Did the bag test and found no contamination. I tried a similar approach on my hood because of contamination, the hood being coated with CarPro CQuartz, leaving the MDR on for about 20 mins as I couldn't get the contaminated to leave. I washed the hood to remove the MDR and found the coating to be DEAD. I was shocked to see this. Have you heard of this before? I thought MDR even with long dwell times was coating friendly.

    Heijneker, I did as you suggested and used MDR prior to claying (even though there were no water spot) and it made it so I didn't have to clay!

    Awesome thanks! I checked out the video and what you say makes sense.

    Optimum Synergy Podcast

    Totally understand, but the old podcast episodes being lost is a huge blow in my viewing. For a marketing perspective they should keep them around.

    Optimum Synergy Podcast

    These podcasts are what brought me into the Optimum family. I understand not wanting to continue producing new podcasts but they should absolutely bring back the old timeless content. I sure hope that $10 a month isn't what's keeping them from coming back. If so I would seriously question the business judgment of Dr G. I'm saying this as a concerned pro-sumer detailer who has very much enjoyed the Optimum synergy product line. Paul

    What happened to the podcast? When can we expect more episodes? Paul
  14. I'm looking for a maintenance routine for a Gloss Coat. Other coating vendors publish details routines so I'm wondering what Optimum recommends? I'm sure #1 is washing with ONR regularly. Should I Ferrex annually? Power Clean as needed? MDR as needed? Optimum Car Wash quarterly? Any top coat that should be applied regularly? OptiCoat, Opti Car Wax? I'm just looking at a solid procedure that will keep the coating alive and well for as long as possible. Thanks, Paul
  15. I have a black BMW with water spots I'm preping to coat. What should my workflow look like? I'm guessing the following. 1) Pre-soak 2) Wash 3) Iron remover 4) Clay 5) MDR? 6) Polish 7) Panel Prep 8 ) Coat
