    Anybody still alive?

    None of the forums are as active as they used to be. Apparently Facebook, etc. have supplanted forums, which as some people have pointed out, is unfortunate because you can't search like you can on a forum.

    ONR - not what Im used to

    Oh sorry...maybe Dr. G tweaked it so it doesn't stain the wash media now...

    Did you get the ONR wash and wax? That is a yellow-green color. https://www.opticoat.com/product/optimum-no-rinse-wash-wax/

    Power Clean Purposes and Dilution Ratios

    I would expect that to degrade a sealant...or maybe I should say alter the beading properties.

    Hello to everyone from Sitka Alaska.

    Welcome to the forum! Ask away.

    Yvan Retiring?

    Is Dr. G okay? Medical leave has me worried. Beyond that it sounds like the typical stuff companies go through, different people have different visions and sometimes they don't align. I'm glad Dr. G is going in a direction he is comfortable with.

    Using Onr as clay lube

    One reason is that's hugely expensive as opposed to buying IPA and distilled water in the supermarket. Not remotely suggesting that it's an equivalent, I'm just suggesting a reason why the OP might want to use an IPA mixture instead.

    I see on another forum talk of more personnel changes at OPT (not sure where that info is coming from, Facebook?). Ron, is there more news on this topic?

    How can I clean pump sprayer?

    This is a recurring problem with this product. The Guz says to flush it out with water after using. I'm not sure if I ever got mine unclogged, I haven't used it in a while.

    Gloss Coat -weird water behaviour degradation

    4cc sounds a little light for the whole car, but the rest of your story sounds like a lot of other Gloss-Coat stories.

    Antibacterial Properties

    Ah, the beauty of zwitterionics...
  12. Ron--ONR instructions have always been 1oz to 2 gallons--??
  13. I can generally wash a car (not a truck) with a half gallon of ONR (no wheels). I use a rinse bucket, if you're doing it all with one bucket you want to use 2 gallons to get above the grit guard. So 2 gallons of distilled water isn't bad, or you can look into one of the de-ionizing systems like CR Spotless.
  14. I'm not sure that Opti-Coat Pro Plus should be considered a magic bullet against hard water. You've got to dry before the droplets do. I don't know how many gallons of ONR you mix up, but distilled water is only a buck a gallon from the supermarket, I would use that as cheap insurance. I would talk to your installer about how best to remove the water spots, but it may be that MDR is indicated. Have you tried simply re-wiping the area with your (wet) wash media and redrying?
