  1. Forgive me for asking this question if already answered in previous post. I had a 2018 corvette which had opti coat pro+ (looked awesome!). Unfortunately I had to return the car due to lemon law (serious engine problems - 3 engines blown in 5 months). Yesterday I leased a 2019 corvette and this time I got Simoniz glass coat applied on car and wheels. My brother-in-law works at dealership and it was free (vehicle is a lease and free is free - although I'm sure it won't look the same). My question is although I don't have opti coat ceramic coating, can I still use the same products like hyper seal, instant detailer & gloss enhancer, and my favorite opti clean? Thanks Mark

    appreciate the advice!
  3. Can someone explain the difference between the Big Gold Sponge and the Big Red Sponge? Both are the same size and have similar cleaning abilities. Just wondering if there's a difference (Big God Sponge $10 more). Thanks, Mark
  4. Good morning. I had the Opti Coat Pro+ added to my new 2018 Corvette Grand Sport and love the shine! I clean it once a week with Opti coat no rinse & use Hyper seal as drying aid (use Hyper seal every time car is washed). If car is not too dirty during the middle of the week, I use Opti-clean and Opti Instant detailer. Unfortunately winter is right around the corner and the car will be outside enduring the elements (snow, ice, salt, etc.). I know leaving a Corvette outside in the winter is sacrilegious with other Corvette owners however my garage is not ready for the car this year. To be clear, I won't drive car in the snow however it will be outside. This is my daily driving car (other than when it snows). So here's my questions: 1 -What do other members do (areas where it snows) to maintain and protect the Opti Coat finish over the harsh winter? 2 - Should I change my routine above? 3 - Will the cold (temps below freezing) affect any of the products listed above (Opti-clean, Hyper seal, Opti Instant detailer) when applying outside during the winter? Any suggestions / advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Mark
