Re: My 2014 Jeep SRT Detail - OptiCoat

I gather that's a 1:30am finish, and not just 2.5hrs later.

Mine took just on 6hrs and didn't wash the car for 1 week , the most surprising thing is how easy to clean the wheels and the car I don't even use a chammy , oh and the guy put on 3 coats of the stuff sweet

I wanted minimal maintenance so opticoat was the go.
It has a very nice glass type look.

Yeah. 1:30 am
I didn't want to cut any corners.
1. Iron treatment
2. Foam bath
3. 3 bucket method wash
4. Clay bar
5. Single stage paint correction
6. 2 bucket method wash
7. IPA wipe down
8. OptiCoat application

Including interior and engine bay it's a 2 day job.

Re: My 2014 Jeep SRT Detail - OptiCoat

Thoughts on a silver billet with silver billet color on the chrome grill rings instead of gloss black ?

I use Zaino and it last a year or more if you maintain the finish correctly during that year or more.
