bird-keeper Posted November 28, 2016 Share Posted November 28, 2016 When applying Opti-Seal after a paint correction, is it mandatory to wipe the car down with an IPA solution or Power Clean before applying Opti-Seal or is this something that is just suggested? In my case, I corrected each panel one at a time as my free time allowed (being a hobbyist) and then protected each panel with OCW before moving on to the next section/panel. When I finished the whole car, I did a traditional 2 bucket wash using GG car soap and GD IUDJ as a water softener, then dried the vehicle before applying Opti-Seal and topping with OCW. Was this an acceptable method? Also curious how well OS and/or OCW are supposed to repel dust and fingerprints once applied? The paint looks very glossy now and has great slickness to the touch but seems to attract fingerprints like never before. Even with clean hands just opening and closing the door will leave fingerprint smudges. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
