pdthas Posted March 15, 2016 Share Posted March 15, 2016 I just had my car recently polished and waxed by a professional detailer. I decided to do the optimum gloss coat myself. I know that most applications with this product usually involve polishing the car, light surface prep, and then opti-coat. Since I didn't want my car's paint to be unprotected until I put the coating on (about 1-2 weeks), I had the detailer apply a coating of wax on it knowing I would have to remove it before doing the optimum gloss coat. What's the best way to remove this layer of wax prior to the optimum gloss coating application? I don't have access to a polisher so I was thinking of using a product like Griot's Garage Paint Prep (http://www.amazon.com/Griots-Garage-11135-Paint-Prep/dp/B004UQQVJY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1458007112&sr=8-1&keywords=griot+paint+prep). It is a spray on, leave for about 5 minutes and then wipe off. If I had to wash the car prior to applying the optimum-gloss coat, it would be done using a rinseless wash (Optimum No-Rinse Wash & Shine) since I'll work in a carport area without a hose bib nearby.
