    ONR vs new products

    I am getting a least 3 years out of gloss coat. I wash with onr top it with optimum wax and once a month with hyperseal the paint is slick water just sheers of the paint . My mother in laws car only gets the wax and hyperseal or opti seal . The difference is astounding that's how I know the gloss coat is still there.

    Sponge dripping versus Soaked

    Interesting As you now i use alot of onr i don't use the sponge I use wash mitts the dirt sticks to them like sh to a blanket (for those guys that have kids ) I then grab a clean one . Maybe with the sponge it could be different.

    Sponge dripping versus Soaked

    I like the idea of getting the car panal or the hole car in my case with a layer of onr befor I do my contact wash my mix is probley on the strong side . My car is gloss coated with layers of hypear seal and wax my wash mitts just slide over the paint no scratching or marring. Onr is a amazing product just got the new formula have not used it yet.

    Sponge dripping versus Soaked

    Since I probley soak my car with more onr than any other person on this form lol I guess I better answer this thread. First I rinse the car with a hose so Ron is out of luck using this method right away lol . I keep my ik pro sprayer 9 filled with a couple of gallons of onr at the recommended mix this thing is under 59 psi pressure and i soak the hole car you can get onr in every gap maybe in my head I am pushing dirt out of these areas. I then use several wash mitts soaking in a bucket of onr ( sorry no sponge) more than dripping wet and wash the hole car . Buy now onr is running down the car washing away dirt I hope . I now dry the car if the onr is starting to dry it's time to use more onr lol. This time with onrww in a small weed sprayer I spray one panal at a time and dry maybe I add a spray of optimum spray wax . The car comes out great . I cant see any problem using to much onr.

    Water Beading

    I think some people take this beading a little to far . As long as the water sheets of my car in the rain or when i rinse it with a hose and takes the dirt with it I am good. My car is gloss coated , hyperseal and wax. Works great

    Is it ok to mix ONR and OCW?

    I have mixed optium spray wax with onrww and water in a ik sprayer or weedkiller pump sprayer dont really have a dilution ration down yet but about 2 oz of spray wax and 3oz of onrww in a gallon of water. After doing a onr wash i uses this as a drying aid it gets a nice layer of wax all over the car. It works well in colder temperatures and gets wax I all gaps . If it smears to much I just add more water.

    If you are mixing onr with any other product that you have to rinse then I believe you are losing what one of the benefits of using onr . The protection of using this product . The only optimum products i have mixed and like the way it works is Optimum soap and power clean Onrww and optimum spray wax.

    The way I use onrww is after my onr wash I spray my soulution of onrww and spray wax one panal at a time and dry . I soak the hole car with onr by ik sprayer then wash if the onr is dry buy the time I get done the onrww and spray wax soulution solves this problem and gets a nice layer of wax every were.

    Playing with FerreX

    Looks great I find the hyperseal on the plastic trim really makes the car stand out from other vehicles on the road . Some times after a onr wash and optimum spray wax I do my trim with hyperseal makes my 2008 trim look like new .
  11. No I don't think paint prep will harm your gloss coat . My car is gloss coated and I just did my spring time decamination. Last thing I do is use paint prep before wax and hyperseal. Gloss coat is still there.

    ONR as a Drying Aid?

    Interesting topic I am using my own mixture of onrww and otimum spray wax in a ik sprayer after a onr wash as a drying aid . I spray a couple of panels then dry. I like the way it spreads a nice even coat of wax in all gaps . A bit like the wax in a carwash but opti. Would this be considered as a drying aid?

    New user.

    Hi Robert I am up to at least a dozen products over the last 3 or 4 years . Realy can't go wrong . I used optimums polish and there gloss coat with the help from this form . The gloss coat makes all the other products just that much better. Onr and there spray wax is a pleasure to use my car is really self cleaning its so hydrophobic (i think that's the right term) that rain clouds move away lol. Have fun

    Water Beading

    It's TRUE this product is self cleaning. Also I like the synergy of optimums products it all works together. The real magic is onr the longer it sits in the paint the better . As for beading I don't really care what it looks like I just like the way the water flows of the car when I rinse the car . I think it's the gloss coat that realy repels the water.
