    Opti-Seal removal

    thanx Ron, I guess I can scrap that solution. So I'l just leave well enough alone and wait for about 6/12 months then add another coat of OGC... I didn't think it was as chemical resistant as OC2.0.
  2. Opti clean FTW... I pre soak the car with it before I ONR... I don't spray and wipe anything off the car, especially pollen.

    Opti-Seal removal

    Seems safer than polishing... However, I have OGC underneath the OOS, so how would I really know... Because I will still get the beading/sheeting from the GC? Is OGC as chemical resistant as OC 2.0???
  4. Throw the chamois in the garbage ASAP...
  5. Don't forget to rinse the pollen off the car first... After washing the out of sight spots, apply a wax or sealant to those areas...

    Can I use clay bar?

    Nothing is supposed to adhere to OCP... How did dirt become imbedded in the coating??? The release properties of the OCP is supposedly excellent. If you use a fine clay then you should be fine. OOE worked great for me...
  7. I hate to start new topics, but I asked the same question in another thread and a week later I still have no answer... I have coated my car with OGC, I have since applied 3 layers of OOS on top... Will the OOS have to be removed in order for me to lay down another coat of OGC??? I am asking because I do know that fresh paint is needed for application, however others are applying OGC over OC 2.0 etc... Will the OGC play nice if I apply a coat over the OOS???

    Layering Opti-Gloss Coat?

    I also want to layer OGC, however... I have 3 coats of OOS on top of the OGC... Would it behoove me to remove the OOS before adding another layer of OGC???

    Few OOS / OGC pics

    [ these are the beading pics i promised with a couple extra... need to wetsand that orange peel...imagine the reflection if the orange peel was gone... on my to do list. glass glass pic... moral of the story... optimum products are amazing. coating and sealant are a week old, second coat of OOS went on today. OGC(on paint&glass) / OC 2.0(on wheels) / OOS on the entire car.

    OOS 12 step program...

    I think I have a problem... I can't stop using this stuff. I recently applied OGC then waited 5 days to wash the car, 1 day after I applied OOS to the whole car, even the windows... Big shout out to Mr. Lacroix. 48 hrs later I found myself in the garage giving her an ONR bath and adding another layer of OOS, again to the whole car. Wheels were done also, but my wheels have OC 2.0 on them... Didn't know it worked so well on glass, used a huck towel to knock down the spots that didn't evaporate. Will post pics of the window beading and the paint... Drove on the highway at 50+ mph in heavy rain and didn't even turn on the wipers. This stuff rocks. Funny thing is I had OOS on my shelf and barely used it. I would use it as a drying aid, but now I see it was a waste of product... Looks much better and performs much better when applied to a dry car, I apply as if I were applying OC.

    OGC after 5 days

    Is it okay to wash the car 5 days after applying OGC? Will there be coating degradation if I do? I let her sit in the sun a few hours, been getting a lot of rain here in GA.

    Reason for this forum???

    Reason for this forum???

    I have noticed posts from members as old as 3/4 months... Their questions have still not been answered, whether the question has been asked before or not, the fact remains that it still has not been answered. What is the reason for this or any forum. I have posted questions that still have not been answered, if I am doing a project, ie. Decon, Polish, applying a coating etc. and I have a question, the time in which that question is answered is important. If I don't know the answer then I ask the experts... I find it very interesting...

    When Is It Safe To Wash

    Thanx Ron. I hope I did no damage, I foamed via cannon with optimum car wash, washed with ONR solution and used OID as a drying aid... I did it on the 5th day... 6th day I poured water and also used spray bottle... The OGC seems to be beading and sheeting as it should.

    Opti Gloss Coat on large car

    I just applied OGC to a Dodge Charger... I have 5cc left. Did the entire car except the windows and wheels ( have OC 2.0 on the windows and wheels). I tend to have a heavy hand... So I laid it on pretty thick.

    OID & OGC

    thanx LJ... I don't think "topper" was the word I was looking for... My bad. I just needed to know if the OID would negatively effect the OGC... A lot of enthusiasts frown upon adding a topper to certain coatings... If it doesn't make sense, I leave well enough alone. I will just use ONR, OOC and Optimum Car wash to maintain the OGC.
  23. I just applied OGC to my car, I was wondering if I should or should'nt apply OID as a topper? I usually use it as a drying aid and apply it when the car is still wet. I don't want to change the characteristics of OGC... I am sure that using OID as a drying aid will interfere with the OGC properties... The OGC is outstanding, wish there was more product to work with and a more lengthy longevity... Do you guys consider using OID as a drying aid over OGC... A topper???

    What does Opti Seal look like?

    i've tried and still use them all...OOS, Reload then SPNS, in that order of likes... i presently have 2 coats of OOS on my car. i use it as a drying agent while the car is still wet. the Gloss is ridiculous and it sheets pretty good, definitely not like the car in the vid.
