    Detail experts

    I understand the confusion, Setec. Anyone listed on our opticoat dealers web site is at least an Opti-Coat Pro installer. To be certified you have gone through the extended training provided by Optimum (different training for Coating and Film). Only professional installers are approved, some go through certification and some don't, does not reflect on their ability. You should look at approved New Jersey installer's websites to see if they do Film.

    Go to to the "Dealers" tab, and enter your zip code - there are 5 authorized Opti-Coat installers in the Tampa area.

    I can understand how a spray on film would be so much easier that traditional clear film on your Trans Am.

    Optimum Gloss-Coat

    Yes, you should wait the 7 days before washing and using Paint Prep to assure Gloss-Coat has cured. Paint Prep should remove Opti-Seal prior to applying a second coat.

    Optimum Tire Protection & Coating Review

    ThiiiNG, one consistent recommendation is to thoroughly clean the tires and make sure they are dry before application.

    Optimum Tire Protection & Coating Review

    was posting removal because I had a call from someone who had a bad install that was peeling and needed to know how to remove. TPC is new and there's a learning curve (for OPT as well)...

    Opt Powerclean Rinseless on Tires?

    it should be rinsed or thoroughly wiped (damp microfiber) from wheels. Rinsing may be easier due to the complex construction of wheels.
  8. Welcome to the Optimum Forum. Even with the strong paint protection you have, I'm uncomfortable recommending "dry" cleaning your car (and don't even think about a California Duster) - you might try a leaf blower as a touchless solution. Another option is to use an instant detailer (or ONR mixed to quick detailer formula) to at least dampen the microfiber towel, and prevent micro marring. No warranty covers water spots because they are user error, but ONR softens hard water. If you pre-rinse, don't let the water dry before you use ONR. If you do get water spots, MDR (Mineral Deposit Remover) is a good way to remove them.

    Optimum Tire Protection & Coating Review

    To remove Optimum Tire Protection & Coating (TP&C), Optimum TAR Remover is the best method, but it will not be simple.

    FYI, Power Coat will not remove TPC

    Clear Coat Restorer

    not my call, but suspect our international distributors are putting pressure on -

    Lowe, you can apply to unpainted surfaces but removal might be more difficult. Opti-Shield is heavier than normal paint (remember it is a film).

    Clear Coat Restorer

    Using Paint Prep a purely to ensure thorough cleaning, there are no components to assist CCR bonding.

    Clear Coat Restorer

    There are no plans to ship internationally at this time - a hazmat product.
