    Opti-Seal as Drying aid

    I use Opti-Seal every week as a drying aid, using Rag Company towels (mainly pluffles) and have not had any issues, these towels are nearly 2 years old. The difference I think is that I wash them straight afterwards so they don't sit around having the chance to dry. Have you thought about keeping an extra bucket of ONR to leave them in until washing them? Might stop it drying into the cloth?

    Tweaked ONR

    I thought that would be the answer, totally understand the costs changing packaging - be interesting to see if the users in Europe (like myself) notice the difference as it starts to filter through to us . . .

    Tweaked ONR

    Ron, I think I might know the answer but will there be any noticeable difference in the packaging between the old and new formula?

    Damaged Gauge Cluster Cover?

    I would tend to agree with No Soap, I am an amateur compared to most on here to be me that looks more of a residue than actual scratching/damage . . . maybe a little stronger than ONR is needed to remove it, glass cleaner sprayed on to a cloth perhaps?

    Acquiring Hyper Seal

    Thanks Ron, I had a feeling he might be the best point of contact, have ordered from him before with relation to OPT and Rag Company products.

    Acquiring Hyper Seal

    Hi Ron, just wondering what would be the best method for someone in the UK to acquire some Hyper Seal? I have looked at registered Opticoat installers (none are really close or mention selling Hyper Seal) so was wondering if the detailing companies I already use for OPT products be able to order it in? I haven't contacted any of them about it as yet, due to Covid-19 they are rushed off their feet so struggling to keep up with emails for the time being. Thanks in advance for your help.

    OC 3

    Thanks for the replies, look forward to seeing/hearing more . . . ! (Was secretly hoping it was a new revised Glosscoat for selfish reasons . . . !)

    Gentlemen, May I ask if this is likely to be a consumer or 'pro only' coating?

    Opti-clean as a rinseless wash?

    I'd just like to add the only reason I use OPT products was because of A&J and Lowejackson and the posts they made on a UK based detailing forum. As mentioned in my introduction due to health issues the whole snow foaming, rinsing, 2 bucket method, etc. was not an option so without them and their posts I would probably have a very dirty car and also miss out on the quiet time I get when I get to clean my car (which is usually needed!). They are both a real asset to your brand.

    Well good evening . . .

    . . . one and all! Long time lurker, first time poster! With the amount of information and advice I've gained from this forum I thought it was time to actually say hello. I'm Adam, from Norfolk in the UK. I've always liked a clean car but in the early days only knew of the soap, bucket and sponge method! I think in my years of cleaning I've probably done more harm to paint than good overall . . . Like most, got a 'new to me' car and thought I might look into how to look after this one properly and down the rabbit hole I went! I joined detailing forums, watched YouTube and ended up buying the pressure washer, the 3 buckets, the wheel soaps, paint soaps, glass cleaners, mitts for one part of the car, mitts for other parts, the list goes on and on . . . I think I washed my car twice with all this stuff and loved the results. Shortly after these first initial cleans I was diagnosed with a genetic respiratory condition that seriously hampered my ability to carry out tasks like car cleaning and getting about but I still loved having a clean car. I thought that was going to be an end to me cleaning my own car. Then I started to wonder if there was an easier, more efficient way to get the same results but took less effort to do and set up, and if I had to stop halfway through it wouldn't cause any damage to surfaces. I did my research and came across ONR, and about the whole Optimum Synergy, and thought what a great system! I found this forum and started working my way through the products section, post by post - one of the most informative and polite forums I have ever come across! I was sold, so an order for ONR, BRS, Opti Bond and Spray Car Wax was made and since then I've never looked back. None of these chemicals set off my respiratory condition, I can do a panel a day, or the whole car, which ever suits me with very minimal setup time and all with very few chemicals. Anyway, that's my story, looking forward to getting involved further with this forum and finding out more about polishing as that's still something I'm yet to try, but itching to have a go at!
