    2016 SEMA Speculation Thread

    Good info Guz. Looks like they want to the one stop shop! Buy a new truck and get Pro coating, clear bar, interior coated, and a bedliner all at one place from the same company. And I hear rumors about a tire coating? Wow! They just need something for rust proofing. IMO that would be the most important. All the above stuff is nice but useless if the truck rusts out from under you.

    2016 SEMA Speculation Thread

    More hydrophobic Opti Seal Opti Lens that actually holds up and works A water based tire dressing that lasts for a month minimum on a outside parked daily driver, or a tire coating A filling primer polish that you can coat over Hyper polish easier to wipe off ONR that does not stain wash media An AIO polish that actually provides 6 month protection on a outside parked daily driver Just a couple off the top of my head....

    Difference between GPS and poli-seal

    I dont notice a difference between the two. But I am not looking for it either

    Optimum Synergy Podcast

    Curious of Yvan's process for polishing trim...what product, pad, speed etc... pretty sure he is a member here, but he might not get on here much?

    Optimum Synergy Podcast

    I agree, I really enjoyed the polishing podcast. I will have to back my speed down and try the new hyper compound again. I was not blown away the other times I used it.

    Pad Washer + ONR

    Yvan Lacroix from OPT recommends ONR in the pad washer that they sell. The recomended dilution ratio is 256:1 or 1oz. ONR to 2 gallons of water. I have never tried this because I dont have a pad washer and cant afford one.

    UV protection and Opticoat Pro

    Is factory clearcoat porous? Does the car wax soak into the paint and restore UV inhibitors that way? Or does the wax just sit on top?

    How Strong is Optimum Paint Prep?

    Paint prep is a mild solvent. You should be able to use it as many times as you want without harming you or your car. It will not thin or remove clear coat because it is non abrasive. Opti Seal and car wax are also non abrasive.
  12. Chris, did you ever spread the wax with an applicator then buff with a towel? Looks like I have been overusing the wax. Will have to remember to cut it back

    UV questions from Podcast

    In the earlier thread it was said that the OPT coatings have the best UV protection. The way I took it from the podcast, I understood that applying the Car Wax regularly would have the best UV protection... I guess my options are: 1. Listen to the podcast again 2. Call Dr. G and ask him for myself 3. Stop over thinking it and move on in life

    Gloss coat after metal polish

    Would the prep solution remove the sealant and get it ready for coating?
