Optimum Gloss Coat Maintenance Questions

Recommended Posts

Yes, Paint Prep will remove Opti-Seal and any other wax or residue.  Opti-Coat Pro IS harder and more durable than Gloss-Coat, but no coating can protect against scratching.  I'm frequently asked how much protection do coatings really provide and it's impossible to answer - define "scratch" or marring/swirling".  As Guz states, the best a coating can promise is to reduce the accidental marring caused by improper washing/drying methods.

Thanks guys. I am going to give the car another coat. Maybe I missed spots and that’s the issue.

Is it possible to coat too lightly? As I first mentioned, I used very little of the vial for the whole car.

It is possible to apply too thin a coat, but easy to add a second layer.  I've been told that while not increasing durability, a second coat amps up the shine.
