Travis94 Posted May 28, 2020 Share Posted May 28, 2020 Hello from western PA! Detailing has always been a hobby of mine, and this forum seems to be a very helpful community. Over the years I have acquired numerous tools and products to help keep my vehicle looking better than new. My go to products have been Menzerna PowerLock, and recently, TW Hybrid Ceramic Polish and Wax which was used on my copper metallic Ford Fusion Hybrid a few weeks ago. The gloss is crazy as well as the water beading. However, I'm always looking for more and after using Optimum No Rinse I realized how awesome Optimum products are. As I'm currently in optometry school I can't always find the time to properly maintain my car's paint and decided to bite the bullet on buying a syringe of Gloss Coat. After doing hours of research on this forum and watching Yvan on YouTube, the following is my intended plan: 1. ONR wash; APC on areas that need it 2. Decontamination with iron remover and synthetic clay 3. Optimum Hyper Polish on a Green Hex-Logic pad with polish removal using GYEON Surface Prep and new Eagle Edgeless MF towels 4. Apply Gloss Coat as directed ***is it better to use another applicator pad or a short nap MF for spreading high spots? 5. ***it seems the general consensus is to use Opti-Seal an hour after application as a protectant while Gloss Coat cures . Can another product like Meguiar's Gold Class Carnauba Quik Wax or TW Seal & Shine be used instead? Or does it need to be an SiO2 based sealant?
