  1. Sounds like a plan, guys that would be the way to go! Thanks for the help!
  2. Thanks! For timesaving, but just wanted to know if it was possible basically. ONR on itself really amazes me after every wash, due to how it makes the paint look. OID would increase that amazement, while Opti-Seal would provide the longer lasting protection and improved water-shedding behaviour. Of course Car Wax would be perfectly suited, but I want to try out different stuff!
  3. As the title implies, can I use Optimum Opti-Seal as intented (WOWA) after having used Optimum Instant Detailer as a drying aid with ONR. Will it migrate under the instant detailer or will it remove it? And what if, I used BOTH simultaneously as a drying aid? Would that work?

    Claying with Ferrex

    My thoughts: I believe Yvan used this method of Claying with Ferrex before a quick polish. I'm unsure if he used this as well for a full-on multi-stage detail. I would expect claying this way would surely leave some decontamination behind, depending on the condition of the car of course. But you are killing (or almost killing) two birds with one stone, claying removes stuff Ferrex doesn't and vice versa. As long as you clean your polishing pad often (pad washer seems to be best), it doesn't matter too much if there's still some decontamination on the paint. Perfection isn't required for a quick polish.

    New Formula No Rinse

    I'll be through my first gallon probably by the end of this year, whoopwhoop! It's been nothing short of an amazing experience every time. Easily drying every car (even glass!!) streak free, leaving some decent water beading properties and very nice gloss. I bought some high quality drying and glass towels which made the experience even more incredible. I will contact the distributor in the Netherlands since I buy straight from them. My new gallon needs to be the latest and greatest one!

    Newbie from NY

    Welcome to the forum, nice name! The products suggested by Ron will do a great job, I suggest you try those first (must-haves in your detailing arsenal anyway). But since it's puke, you may want something that has Enzymes in it as well, to specifically fight the odor-causing bacteria. So you might wanna look for a carpet/upholstory cleaner that contains this.
  11. Just saw there is a crazy discount for Optimum No Rinse at Opticoat.com: 2 Gallons for the price of one, crazy value!!! $45 for basically a lifetime of weekly washes for the whole neighbourhood! Any chance us Europeans can chime in on this discount??

    How to remove dried out Polish

    Sadly I don't have any polish(ing machines), I might get some water based polish and try it by hand indeed. Good tip. Hmmmm, why wouldn't Paint Prep work if OPC doesn't work? I was actually most excited to test (a) Paint prep or IPA solution! Maybe even test Acetone in a unnoticeable section of the bumper, with extreme quation and see what it does over time. However, I can recall reading somewhere that IPA is harmful to paint. Any thoughts/info on that and how that relates to Optimum Paint Prep?
  13. Hey all, An uncle bought a relatively new car, 1.5 years old, 20K miles, from a used car dealership. A very nice car. However, accross the front end, there are a lot of very tiny white spots. I believe this is caused by the polish the dealership used, filling and drying in the small stone chips, which would otherwise be unnoticeable. Reason I think this: it has some polishing stains on the black plastic trim. But more importantly: I caused the same exact problem myself once on another car, using an old polish. Looked exactly the same, lots of tiny white spots on the front end. My question is: how do I remove these tiny white spots caused by dried out polish from the car, which are filling in the very tiny rock chips? And also the stain from the plastic trim? Back then (on the car I caused this problem on) I tried using an APC, but to no succes. Thanks.
  14. Welcome to the forum, Lou! I'm sure you can find what you are looking for. Indeed the line-up is very well designed, I myself use almost solely OPT chemicals (And the Wheel & Body Brush) when cleaning cars with ONR. I'm doing this small scale professionally and people are always amazed by the results! I'm just now trying P&S Brake Buster for tires and Meguiar's Wheel Brightener for the rims, even though Optimum Power Clean is more that capable of cleaning both. Mainly for cost reasons, and Wheel brightener will hopefully work better on badly neglected wheels and be easier to wipe off. Opti-Seal is a stunning product, maybe even as amazing as ONR. A very effective glass cleaner and awesome paint protectant. Even with two months of filth, water still beads pretty great on a neglected car. Even some Rain-X effects. Don't even get me started on how cheap everything is to use!! Gosh, I've done it again.... Blablablabla!

    Opti-Seal as Drying aid

    What do you mean with soaking in ONR before drying? You use wrung out towels to dry? I used to do that and worked pretty good mostly.
