    Matte wheels

    What sealant etc should I use on matte wheels?
  2. I'm an opticlean fan and like it better than ONR for waterless so different strokes. I've pushed the limits of both products with good results. Think either should handle pollen easily.

    Layering OOS

    Found the answer to the first part in the q & a -- d'oh

    Layering OOS

    Is there a benefit to layering Optiseal? If so, how many layers?
  5. I need to do spring clean on my MINI fabric convertible top. In past I've used the raggtop kit but if requires a full traditional wash. Is there a waterless/rinse less way to clean it?

    OOC inplace of ONR and ID&GE?

    So what waterless do you see as more cost effective? and does that product do the job as well?

    OCW in the ONR Bucket Followed by OS

    An ounce per two gallons is what I read.

    Brushes and ONR

    I know Ranney out at PakShak has them.
  9. Is there a brush/type of brush that works with ONR? I'm specifically looking for something to use one my wheels - they have lost of tiny nooks and crannies. Was thinking of BHB or similar?

    The Line between Opticlean and ONR

    Seems like from other forums that most people are just using it like a glorified QD. Am I the only one who is actually using it on a dirty car?

    Hand stains

    Can't answer your question but can't pass up the chance to ask how your hand is sheeting water - lol
  12. I've found with careful techniques I can clean pretty dirty cars with ONR. I read somewhere that you should only use Opticlean on mildly dusty cars (of course many use to say that about ONR). My question is, where is the line (in grime) between using Opticlean and ONR?
  13. Hope I got all the abbreviations right. I read somewhere that you can add an ounce of OCW (Optimum Car Wax) into the bucket with your ONR wash and do a wash and wax. I haven't tried it yet but think I will soon. This lead me to another thought. I believe I remember that Optimum Products aren't terribly picky about order of application. So I'm guessing that putting on Optiseal after doing this wouldn't be a problem - right? TIA, Tony
