Optimum Opti-Coat Update

Update on the Optimum Opti-Coating recently carried out on a Honda CRV.

Original post:

The car has been sent to a regular car wash for two months after coating. It should be interesting to see how the coating copes with this 'abuse'.

So far so good....

The lighting isn't great but under the street lights it looks great!

Stay tuned for more updates.

Optimum Opti-Coat - Honda CRV

Brand new Honda CRV coated with Optimum Opti-Coat.

The Optimum Opti-Coat is designed to form a protective layer on top of the existing paints clear coat which is more resistant to scratching and other contaminants. The full effect of the Optimum Opti-Coat can be seen in this earlier post where the Optimum Opti-Coat was able to protect paint which suffered from clear coat failure even after 5 months!!!


For this detail and Opti-Coating, the car was washed with the usual Optimum No-Rinse (ONR) wash and clayed with ONR lube. It is very important to ensure the surface of the vehicle is properly prepped BEFORE coating with Optimum Opti-Coat as the coating forms a semi-permanent protective layer on top of the existing paint.

After washing and claying the surface is carefully inspected to identify any other paint defects that have to be addressed before applying the Optimum Opti-Coat.

Upon initial inspection, the paint does not look too bad but...

Under the proper lighting conditions, there were some issues with water spots on the paint.

The spots are more visible under halogen lights.

The engine bay was also detailed and the Optimum Opti-Coat applied to the plastic surfaces.

 To remove the water spots and other minor defects on the paint, Optimum Hyper polish was used with a rotary. The surface was then wiped down with IPA to ensure that any contaminants were fully removed so that the Optimum Opti-Coat fully adheres to the paint.

The paint after light correction. Water spots and other minor paint defects removed.

Prepped for Optimum Opti-Coating.

 The Optimum Opti-Coating is carefully applied to ensure full and even coverage of the paint surface.

Some shots after coating.

Thanks for looking. For more information on the Opti-Coating check out:

Optimum Opti-Coat Review - Water Beading after 5 months.

Just uploaded a video showing the water beading of Opti-Coat after 5 months. No special maintenance carried out other than washing with ONR on a regular basis.

The original post on the Opti-Coat can be found here:

The results are quite impressive considering it has been 5 months without anything being applied to it.

Sound like a challenge...

Honda Accord Optimumized with Optimum Hyper Polish and Compound

Its been a while...

Just got a shipment of products in from the US from Dr. G of Optimum Polymer Technologies including the latest Optimum Hyper Polish and Optimum Hyper Compound. As usual, the best way to test out any new products is to try it out on the softest and hardest to finish black paint...

It just so happened that he owner of the black Honda Accord which I did 9 months ago asked me to look into some issues which he was having with the interior and exterior of his car. The original post can be found here:

This was the state of the car when it arrrived:

This was how it left...

Water Beading on Honda City

Manage to snap some shot of the water beading on the Honda City after an evening shower. Not bad compared with absolutely no water beading before the detail.

Honda City - Quick Detail

Was going to carry out a quick detail on another Honda City. I had originally planned on using Optimum Power Clean to clean off any contaminants on the paint surface followed by Optimum Opti-Seal to seal it off and then topped off with Optimum Car Wax. Based on previous experience with these products, once applied, the paint had a 'just polished' feel to it. Like polishing without polishing.

As with all plans, thing are subject to change....

The condition of the car before:

That's the benefit of having gold paint. Can't really 'see' the dirt on the car. Perfect of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Detailers).....

Although its not that obvious in this picture the hood of the car has been sprayed with a hose. There is very little to no water beading at all.

Wetting with a hose again.
No beading at all...
After some time, some sheeting action seen at the edges of the hood.

The car was then treated to a full wash with Optimum Power Clean. The idea was to remove any contaminants and then proceed to seal and wax the paint for a quick detail. Unfortunately, even the Optimum Power Clean was not strong enough to deal with some of the stains such as these on the top corner of the roof.

On with Plan B...
