    Great story and good luck - not much in life that inspire like great cars and the satisfaction of playing with them!

    Hello from India

    welcome to the Optimum Forum. I was involved in signing the first 2 Indian OPT distributors and know there's a very active customer base there.

    Optiseal after Optigloss

    Scott, you are most welcome - car enthusiasts love to help! By the way, while product descriptions can be marketing gimmicks, Gloss Coat is a ceramic coating. The magic is in the chemistry - the Opti-Coat Pro line is SiC and most others are SiO2 (there are some detailed explanations in this forum on the differences). Gloss-Coat is a hybrid containing components of both formulas - SiC for durability and SiO2 for gloss/slickness. With good maintenance and regular use of Hyper Seal, your Gloss-Coat will last for years.

    Optiseal after Optigloss

    Hyper Seal is available from approved installers or at the store under the "Maintenance" tab. Do not apply Hyper Seal over ceramic coating for 7 days, but Opti-Seal can be applied after 1 hour. Sealants provide protection during the 7 day "soap free" cure time while chemical resistance it building. They also give you a sacrificial layer for bugs, tar, water spots. etc.

    optigloss and reapplying emblems

    there should be no problem attaching new emblems to Gloss-Coat.
  9. As has been stated many times, Optimum does not test competitors but we certainly respect those who do and encourage open discussion about the good and bad.
  10. I have a customer in Florida who stays in close contact and likes to test products. He's tried Beadmaker and says it's good but not as durable as Hyper Seal (and like me, he doesn't get the angst over "bead size" or "tightness"). For what it's worth...

    Opti-Glass Clean and Protect

    Coatings and sealants are not the same chemistry, but if it works for you, use it.

    Road Rash

    It's a matter of degree, is the scratch through the paint in which Setec is correct, it needs at least touch up. If not, CCR will at least protect the paint from further deterioration. Again Optimum's recommendation is to keep your existing clear coat as long as possible, but CCR will protect/correct road rash if necessary. There are very good videos on youtube by Yvan LaCroix on CCR application.

    Opti-Glass Clean and Protect

    Since Clean & Protect has coating components, it can cause interior fogging from humidity (hydrophobic).

    Road Rash

    Bob, if you can correct with Hyper Compound and wool pad, that's the way to go - factory clear is superior to CCR. If you need to use CCR, be sure to remove any compound/polish residue and oxidation.

    Opti coat installer for Las Vegas

    these are all authorized Opti-Coat Pro installers. Certified means they've taken the training offered from Optimum in Memphis, but does not mean they are superior installers.
