Black looks best when its freshly detailed and/or washed! … it’s too bad that fresh look typically only lasts 1-3 days. Fortunately, Opticoat Pro will make Jason’s maintenance washes easier, quicker, and safer! The car came in covered in water spots and paint was in fairly rough condition. It was originally supposed to be just a primer polish and application, but I was unhappy with how that finished down, so I stepped it up a bit with a compound before prepping for Opticoat Pro. ‘ts lookin much better now!

For those who lease vehicles and/or do not keep their cars for long, Optimum’s Glosscoat (dubbed “Glothcoat”) is a very solid entry level coating that would last 2-3 years. I personally am a fan of the product, which leaves a glossy (duh), slick, and long term protection on the vehicle. For even greater protection, top Opticoat Pro with Glosscoat!

In today is another one of Volkswagen’s flagship models, the GTI. Always a pleasure to work on these little things as the body lines are fluid and easy to polish. Rich’s GTI is now protected for many many many years to come!

It’s always great to work with people who has extensive knowledge of car care. I’m sure Geoff was more than capable of applying a coating himself, but he still brought it to me! Despite being right in the middle of a storm, the weather somehow cooperated and was dry upon drop off and pick up. Now shes’ all ready for the second wave of rain that should hit tomorrow!

After nearly a year of back and forth emails, we were finally able to get Craig’s Model S in for a good layer of Opticoat Pro. The car had been in an accident before and gotten a respray along the driver side. The paint felt a little rough, but nothing a decon couldn’t take care of. A single step polish was enough to get the car to 80%+ shape and prepped for coating.
