The Optimum Opti-Coat trial was started about a month ago on a car with clear coat failure to evaluate if the Opti-Coat would act as a 'new' clear coat.
A follow up update was done two weeks later.
The initial results were simply astounding.
This was the state of the boot before anything was done.
This was what it looked like after compounding, polishing and an application of Optimum Opti-Coat.
After two weeks, there were some issues with the paint fading at the edge of the test area.

It has now been another two weeks....
I was very keen to find out how the Opti-Coat was holding up as there was some issue of fading in the edge of the test area. As reported in the update two weeks ago, I suspect that this was due to the surface preparation as the rest of the test panel looked great. The only way to confirm this was to evaluate if the fading continue across the rest of the panel.
The Opti-Coat still looks great!!!
I was very anxious to view the results after another two weeks and after a quick ONR wipedown this was the results...
If you compare this with two weeks ago, the faded areas still look the same.
How about the rest of the panel?
Still looking pretty good...
The Optimum Opti-Coat really does work. Although this was never meant to be its intended purpose, I could think of no better way to test what is supposed to be a second-layer of coating on a car which had clear coat failure.
There was a slight issue with the paint fading in one section of the test area but as the fading was confined to that area, I suspect that this is probably due to issues with the surface preparation.
This will be the final update as the rest of the boot lid will be corrected and sealed with Opti-Coat.
Thank you for your interest in this review.
