With all these black cars lined up, summer must be around the corner! I worked on Eugene’s Model S a few months ago. He liked the Opticoat Pro so much that he decided to get his other baby coated as well! This car needed much more prep work, and a lot more polishing prior to coating. I think it came out pretty dang good..
Polish game was on fleek the past two days! Eric’s S2000 CR edition has been sitting for years as he lives in another state, and was long overdue for a good polish. The goal of this detail was to restore the paint and to protect it with Opticoat Pro for many more years to come. Our schedules worked out such that he was able to leave the car with me while he was traveling, allowing me to spread the work over the course of a few days. A few sweaty t-shirts, a lot of polish, and about 15 hours later, the car is ready for Eric’s return. I’m very glad the rear spoiler and hard top were easy to remove, as it made it much much easier to polish the rest of the car.. especially the trunk being in the condition that it was.
It’s always a pleasure working with owners who are willing to leave their cars for a while. It worked out quite well as Tom was leaving for a week or so, allowing me to work on the car a few hours a day, and while also allowing 2-3 days for Opticoat Pro to cure. No before pictures as the car came straight from the Tesla factory with very very few miles.
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!
