I'm sure Ive done something wrong, but my Jeep looks great one year later, with only one clay treatment and Wet Diamond sealant done in the Fall. Still appears to be protecting and water sheets off beautifully, which to me is a big deal... (It keeps use the drying towel to a minimum)

Honestly, I see no problem here at all. You attacked the problem without compound,and a polisher which makes sense. Opti Seal is not a bad choice either.

I agree..it was a huge effort. My concern was getting it super clean without a lot of scrubbing and rubbing due to abrasives present.. My Jeep sat in the factory lot for 6 weeks then took a train ride and truck ride to me. I've read that Detroit factories leave a nice abrasive residue and trains do too....so I thought I'd avoid rubbing grit into the virgin finish and start out with it squeaky clean and sealed.
