My (mostly) Optimum Day (s)

Recommended Posts

Full detail of my 2012 JK, looks pretty good for a 7 year old ride.  Actually, looks better than it ever has.

  1. Cleaned tires with Power Clean, took about 5 treatments of straight PC to remove all the brown using a stiff bristled brush.
  2. Manually applied 2 coats of Optimum Tire Protection Coating to all 5 tires.  35” Mickey Thompson ATZ P3’s.  Heck of an arm workout.
  3. Washed truck with ONR using Opti Clean as a pre soak.
  4. Washed with Power Clean foamed 5:1 in IK.  Agitated with wash mitt, just can’t make the leap to use the wheel and body brush on my soft black paint.
  5. Mechanical decon with Optimum Clay Mitt  using Ferrex as clay lube.
  6. Polished with Opt Compound II and finished with Meguires M210.  I just couldn’t get Polish II or Finishing Polish to work well on my paint.  M210 is impressive.
  7. Wiped down twice with Opt Paint Prep.  Really surprised and impressed by the slickness it adds.
  8. Applied Gloss Coat x 2 to the paint.  OMG application was easy.  It really is easier than a wax or even a quick detail spray for that matter.
  9. Waited 1 hour and applied Opti Seal.  Never used this before, applied just like Gloss Coat.

Too bad Optimum doesn’t make flowers for me to buy my wife, she is giving me the look given the amount of time I have spent in the garage.   All in all, very happy with every product used.  Pic attached.
