mr_robot Posted April 4, 2020 Share Posted April 4, 2020 Well, just finished applying Opti-Coat and gotta say it was pretty uneventful. So I primed the pad as seen on Youtube, went to my first panel and it was so grabby I felt I wasn't spreading the product evenly or hardly at all! Today was cloudy mid 50's with 65% humidity and my car being white made it really hard to see. I could see the gloss coat were I initially touched with the pad, but as I would spread in a circular motion it was really squeaky and grabby. The blue applicator pad did not glide at all. I was using 8-10 drops per panel but kept having to add more half way. I used about 8-9cc for my entire car (BMW 6-series so it's pretty big panels) went back to panels and kept applying it. My OCD just can't help and think I did not get a good even coverage and the it did not spread evenly!!! Arggg! Am I over thinking it?! Spent most of the day prepping the car as follows: 1. Washed the car with ONR. 2. I used Power Clean and a traditional clay bar to mechanically decontaminate. 3. Used an iron remover to chemically decontaminate. 4. Rinsed it again with ONR. 5. Used Griot's BOSS Fast Correcting Cream (Griot's confirmed their BOSS line has no filler or oils) 6. Used Griot's Paint Prep, rinsed AGAIN with ONR 7. Just to be safe I used a diluted IPA as a final wipedown before proceeding with Gloss Coat. What do you guys think? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
