2007 Acura TSX (Artic Blue Pearl)

Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

Optimum Opti-coat Pro  (Formerly known as Optiguard), a thicker version of Opticoat 2.0, application is the strongest protection available for a vehicle’s clear coat. Unlike waxes and sealants, Opti-Coat Pro is applied once, and lasts for the entire lifespan of the paint. It comes with an optional lifetime warrantly and is truly scratch and swirl resistant. It strengthens the clear-coat by roughly 10x, and is only available to authorized installers by Optimum Car Care. 

Working on Stephen’s TSX these past two days was a little nostalgic. I got into detailing as a hobbyist on a TSX forum just eager to try new products, and wanted to test them out on peoples’ cars. Eventually, it took off and word spread like wildfire. It still is a hobby to me, and while I could probably turn it into my full time work if I wanted to, I probably wouldn’t enjoy it as much anymore. For now, it just seems like I’m hanging out in the garage. A two step polish on Stephen’s TSX got the paint poppin’… it makes my 192k mile TSX sitting beside it look like crap (granted the last time I polished mine was over a 2 years ago). It got a generous coating of Opticoat Pro via air brush (Optiglass on windows) to protect the vehicle for years to come. Enjoy!
