Well, this is great news, I have been trying to decide what coating to put on come the spring and hopefully this will of filtered through to the EU/UK by then. I have a friend heading to the US in December, maybe he can get hold of some while over there visiting family.
Those photos look great! With these kinds of results, I wonder if Dr G would consider selling HS direct to consumers? Would love to GC my car then maintain with a compatible product like HS but it's extremely difficult to get in the UK.
So I tried Protectant Plus and OCW today on the plastic trim around my Subaru. I washed the car with ONR and Opti-Seal as my drying aid then applied both products in different places. I understand that the wax can migrate through the OS but would that be the same for Protectant Plus?
Just wanted to get some peoples thoughts/experience on this topic - I have a new to me 2017 Subaru XV (Crosstrek), it has plastic cladding around the wheel arches and the bottom edges of the vehicle. I currently use ONR followed by Opti Seal for my drying aid which I use on these plastics. I was wondering if there would be any benefit of using Opti-Bond on the plastics over just having Opti-Seal on them? Would it provide higher UV protection? Maybe prevent them from becoming brittle?
The main selling point I have seen from wheel specific coatings are to do with the amount of heat they can withstand without compromising it. I am no expert on coatings so I have no idea how much heat a paint ceramic coating can withstand and if extra heat resistance is actually needed, one for @Ron@Optimum to pass on to Dr G maybe?
Thanks for the update @Heijneker, the OPT polishes are one of the products I've never got to trying as my current was in very good condition. Saying that on Thursday I'm picking up a new to me 2017 Subaru XV (Crosstrek for my American friends) and that will need a polish so I've been looking into these polishes a little deeper, always nice to hear first-hand experiences.
