  1. I'll try Opti-Seal since i already have a bottle. Since I already applied OCW, do I need to wash it down with degreaser first or can I just layer it on top when its dry?
  2. Opti Coat on Harley Pipes/Chrome

    But the real question is, does it retain its protective properties after exposure to heat even if it doesn't change color?
  3. I jsut spent an hour cleaning off a year's worth of soap scum from my fiber glass shower walls which meant applying chemicals that make you cough and a lot of scrubbing. For now, I sprayed on some OCW and worked the walls as if I was waxing a car. I applied two coats and surface is smoother to touch but repelling isn't all that impressive. Does OCW resist washing off from fiber glass regularly splashed with warm detergent solution compared to say, paste wax like turtle wax? Is applying Opti-Seal or Opti-Coat a worthwhile effort? Which of these would provide better and lasting protection on fiber glass exposed to water regularly, such as boat hull or shower walls?
  4. Preface: I own ONR, OC, OID and OCW. When a full wash is justified, I use optimum no rinse. When it comes to OC and OID, the difference isn't so clear. From reading Autopia and descriptions provided by other manufacturers of "quick detail spray" it appears that QD is used for dust. http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/tricks-tips-techniques/23128-tips-techniques-using-spray-detailer-remove-light-dust-fingerprints-smudges.html This says "mist quick detailer" OID just says to "spray" OC says "apply liberally'. If I'm dealing with dust that settles on my car from parking outside, which product is more appropriate or is there really any real difference other than adjusting portions depending on contamination? (i.e. mist for settled fine dust, apply liberally to start waterless car wash)
  5. I just bought some ONR to use as rinseless wash. From what I read on Autogeek and this very forum, it can be used as quick detailer at 8oz to gallon concentration (6.25%). The bottle I just bought which says "new formula" on it lists 1/256(ounce to two gal) for wash, 1/64(2oz to gal) for clay lube, but use as quick detailer is not listed. I thought quick detailing is the process of "mist and wipe dry" light contamination. So, how do Optimum No Rinse as QD, OID and Opti-Clean differ from each other? How does "quick detailing" differ from "waterless wash"? From how I'm seeing it, waterless wash addresses higher level of contamination... but what's the point of having two different seemingly overlapping products? I already asked the same question on Autopia since it was taking a while to activate my account, but wanted to get OPT's official words Here's my Autopia thread http://www.autopia.org/forum/car-detailing-product-discussion/141091-optimum-quick-detailer-onr-vs-oid-vs-opti-clean-3d-differences-what-use.html
