Thank you for the reply Ron,
Another follow-up question on Hyper Seal. My current wash process is a rinseless wash with ONR followed by Hyper Seal as a drying aid on a car that is not coated. Does this process offer adequate UV protection for my paint/plastic trim and prevent yellowing of the headlights? If Hyper Seal doesn't add UV protection like OCW, what step in the process should I use OCW? I think I've seen one of your reply's saying its best to add wax first then Hyper Seal because the Hyper Seal will shed the wax if the wax is added after the Hyper Seal.
I see that the Optimum Car Wax (OCW) is advertised as offering significant UV protection and I think I've read a forum post (*citation needed) that mentions the OCW integrates with the clear coat to reinvigorate the clearcoat's UV protection. Optimum No Rinse Wash & Wax (ONRWW) states it "provides all the benefits of No Rinse Wash & Shine plus additional protection and shine of Optimum Car Wax in one easy step." If I switch from ONR to ONRWW, will the UV protection of ONRWW be as significant and durable as using ONR + OCW?
I'm thinking of adding Gloss-Coat to my car as well. It is a couple months old and only has a very few minor defects so I don't really want to polish because I don't have the tools. Since I've applied Hyper Seal a few times, will prepping the surface with Optimum Paint Prep be necessary and or sufficient before applying the Gloss-Coat?
