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.
