1. No, you just wash it after it sets. No waxing for up to 5 years.YellowJacketBoss302 said:Looks great Sammy. A few questions:
1. Do you have wax or anything over the opti-coat?
2. Any problems using it over the stripes?
3. Did you apply it yourself?
4. If not -- who applied it and what was cost?
I do not keep my BOSS washed and waxed as much as I should. This might save her from my semi-neglect.
you can still wax and seal over a coating. And eventually you will get surface imperfections in the coating, so you'd be best to seal and wax it.Sammykjr1 said:1. No, you just wash it after it sets. No waxing for up to 5 years.
2.) none whatsoever
3.) No I didn't
4.) Rejuvenators Detailing in Gulfport, MS. Cost was $200 (I got the "friend" discount"
which is easier to apply?killerwill13 said:Opti-Coat is a resin based polymer. Cquartz is a sillica coating. But if you want the best in terms of strength I would have to say 22ple.
I'm still waiting to try 22ple, but I'd say opti coat is a bit easier.. I'm only saying this because silica is pretty much liquid glass so you need to be paying lots of attention and care to the product and tools your using.Justin said:which is easier to apply?
can either be applied over the decals?killerwill13 said:I'm still waiting to try 22ple, but I'd say opti coat is a bit easier.. I'm only saying this because silica is pretty much liquid glass so you need to be paying lots of attention and care to the product and tools your using.
honestly I'm iffy on that. Everything I've seen says yes. But I prefer to apply two layers of quality sealant and then two-four layers of high quality wax. This is because silica and resign are a lot more durable and fundamentally they are a whole new layer of solid matter over the clear coat and stripes. Which freaks me out because that means it could cause damage to the stripes because it is fused to it. Just my opinion on that. I'm open to treating all the paint then following the whole car with a sealant.Justin said:can either be applied over the decals?
