    Thanks for the reply as one of the primary reasons I like purchasing Optimum products is because of their UV protection. Now, I only have to finish the gallon of Opti-Bond Tire Gel and I’ll be trying product next.

    My question is whether this product has UV protection as a benefit? I viewed the link to the product, but could not find any mention of UV on the product label. Thanks.

    Opti Lens info?

    I am going three years and four months long on a twelve year old automobile that is a daily driver coated with Opti-Lens. I detail my vehicles regularly, but living in Southern California with drought conditions led me to letting this automobile go up to six months without washes (it is stored in the garage during the night). During the day it is a commuting road warrior. I can state, without question, that Opti-Lens is a superior coating as the headlights still look like new! This starting from a situation that you mentioned—factory peeling, and I do mean bad peeling and hazing. 3M makes an excellent inexpensive headlight restoration kit that is easily available at your bigger chain stores. I used the kit with my Griot's Garage small orbital versus the drill attachment in the kit. I did spend several hours sanding and prepping as this step is imperative. Coating application is super simple and my advice is to prep and coat all your other lens on your vehicle(s) at the same time. Would I recommend Opti-Lens? Highly!!! If cost is a factor simply get some friends or family members to pitch in and do their lens too.

    Opti Lens info?

    I purchased the 10cc version for coating the vehicles I own and some family members too. My intent was not to save it, but to use it all as soon as possible. For me, it is good value for the money.
