“Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is a permanent coating that protects automotive paint over its lifetime! Unlike a wax or sealant, Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 will not wash or wear off. It acts as a second layer of clear coat which provides increased protection against the elements”

Well you don’t see these everyday…! Especially in this kind of condition. It’s funny because my first car was a 1987 …. it died back around 2003 haha.

It’s pretty common for new cars to get their cars opticoated as it’s pretty much permanent. (Personal theory) It’s even more beneficial for single stage painted cars (common in the early 90’s, late 80’s) to get a solid layer of opticoat on as oxidation occurs much easier in SS paint. The entire car got nanoscrubbed, polished, followed by Opticoat. The rubber mud guards were restored using a heat gun, and other black trims’ luster were brought back to life using Black WOW.
