2013 Nissan Leaf (Blue Metallic Tricoat)

Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

“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”

Ya’know I was actually never a fan of the way the Nissan Leaf looked – but it’s actually a very practical commuters car. The all-electric car allows you to ride the HOV lane by yourself, while having the capacity to travel ~80 miles round trip on a full charge. The cabin is spacious and being a hatchback, you can fit quite a bit inside with little effort. Shoot.. I might as well be a salesperson. Yi’s commuter got the Opticoat 2.0 treatment today. It had a much needed decontamination – I’m not sure where he picked up all the tar, but it’s looking right again! The car got an autoscrub, single step polish using M205, and topped with Opticoat 2.0 for longevity (and probably the best protection out currently)

Here’s the process:

  • P21S Total Auto Wash + Grit Guard & Car Pro MerinoWool Mitt (2 bucket method)
  • Nanoskin Nanoscrub / Fine / Nanoskin GLIDE
  • Meguiar’s M205/ Rupes LHR15ES 5.5″ / Microfiber Finishing Pad
  • Meguiar’s M205 / Meguiars G110v2 4″ / White
  • Optimum Opticoat 2.0/ By Hand / Optimum Dual-Pro Application (Permanent Ceramic Coating)
  • Surf City’s Tire Cleaner
  • Stoners Invisible Glass
  • Optimum Opti-bond
  • Car Pro Iron-X
  • Car Pro Erasure
  • Car Pro Tar-X
  • Sonax Full Effect
  • Compressed Air
