But, those are all OUR vehicles, and we paid for them, and if the paint gets too bad, we pay for that as well on trade in unless we pay a professional to spiff it up for the trade.

And some may not at all care to put Opti Guard on their vehicles....

So, it it would be possible to just let people continue in their folly, probably deeply appreciated.

Probably a shiny Jeep would have induced nausea on the old jeep-willys newsgroup and there may be poverty stricken refugees from there lurking here.

Will there be a going away party?

This doesnt answer my question. It really is a serious question. I would do this and try it. The f150 has 79K and is in showroom condition, has always seen nice weather and the garage....with the exception of this winter when I started driving it because of the horrible roads.

I will use wolfgang sealer every 6 months, have 1 aplication so far only 1 month old, on my 2014 JGC Overland as it is the wifes and sees daily family duties.
P21s wax, no sealer on my 2009 Z06, which doesnt need sealer
Mothers cleaner wax 3-4 times a year on my 2011 Challenger which now sees 3 seasons.
Whatever wax was on sale, usually just the mothers on my f150 twice a year...but I would try the perfect coating you tout on this vehicle.
I do nothing, dont even wash my 2000 sable, as that is my downtown, or concert,venue,valet park vehicle.

I would have the other finishes to compare to, I have the spectrum,haha.

So how much?

Re: The Great Drying Towel Debate

You can buy OptiCoat 2 (I believe that is it) and do the application yourself, just have to be very careful with it to make sure it is smooth and level. There are many threads on here with that people use it and love it. Some people do add wax on top of it but isn't needed.

Yep we get it that you use claybar/mud(dirt that isn't for the average Joe)/water to clean the paint. Haven't heard 1 person buy into your great washing or cleaning of the paint. No real before/after pictures to show what (if any) improvement your skills have done to a vehicle. Yes, preach how it is your job and you want to make it easy, blah blah blah. It seems your missing the point in this thread at this point. NO ONE CARES nor does it seem they believe your theory when you can't even show before/after pictures like Scott asked in another thread, all you did was try to answer a question with more questions. If your way of detailing is so great and want to give out your advice for free, then go make a youtube channel and make videos for the masses. Do you even own a Jeep/Dodge product that you even help people with that doesn't involve detailing? If not, then you really are just wasting time.

Telling someone to mind their own business on a thread in a public forum is just another dumb thing. If you don't want peoples thoughts or comments then you don't make stupid threads, does that make sense or do I need to spell it out for you.

Nobody cares, or just you and a few zealots.

I do not know if you are asking me the question? If so,you need to get get the wax thing out of your head when talking about protection. If your paint is good then all you need to do is make absolutely sure all waxes, glazes,or polishes are removed prior to applying the Opti Coat.

You are like the majority of people I dealt with in business. No problem.
I cannot tell you what an Opti Coat application runs, but if it protects your paint for more years what would you be willing to pay for it if you only had to wash it with Dawn and never have to do all the other work you mention. There is a version that you can apply yourself.

I have been googling it, and a product CQuartz seems to have a better review status than opticoat.


But I am still not understanding why this is better. Less applications?

Really, I cannot tell you exactly why. Look, I wish I could direct people to where I buy my product, but that is not a option. C quartz may be a viable alternative, Glare products look interesting also.

What I like about Opti Coat is that it is a permanent coating. That means it does not wear off, and does not allow bad things from doing damage.Basically, you do not have to be concerned about bad things staying on the finish to long. No damage or swirl marks, no correction.


Here is one other alternative you may want to consider:

Chemical Guys WAC_115_16 - Factory Paint Sealant (16 oz)
