    I`ve been visiting Ft. Myers every weekend for the past few months. The weather is usually much nicer on that side for some reason.

    I`m at about 6 months with Gloss-Coat on my car and it`s holding up great in South Florida (Stuart). It rained this morning and when I went outside for lunch it looked like I just washed my car. This stuff is very hydrophobic.

    Re: VIDEO: Opti Coat Application

    Since we`re talking about Gloss-Coat, I have a question. OC 2.0 was highly chemical resistant, which was great for contaminants like tar, which could be cleaned off with a solvent without effecting the OC 2.0, whereas with a wax or sealant, the solvent would generally remove the LSP.

    How does Gloss-Coat hold up to things like IPA, mineral spirits, Iron-X, Tar-X, FerreX, etc.?

    Re: VIDEO: Opti Coat Application

    Chris,

    Since I just got 2 tubes of gloss coat, I would like to know this as well.

    I will be recoating 2 vehicles that were coated with Opti-Coat 2.0 about 2 years ago. Any special prep? My idea is to wash, Ferrex., Nano skin pad it (fine), clay other area can get to w/Pad using ONR as Lube, Hopefully only polish with a polishing pad and finish polish to out any Micro Marring or nonsense I have collected. Wipe down 2X with IPA or Eraser. (Is there a difference as far as OG is concerned-I have both on hand). Apply OG with suede applicator 2 coat on paint, trim, headlights and wheels. Optimum Glass Coating will be re-applied, it is holding well and better than the OC 2.o.

    Use hyper polish as your polish, damp microfiber wipedown for any unseen residue, skip the IPA because Hyper is awesome.

    Re: VIDEO: Opti Coat Application

    Chris, we were also asking about the chemical resistance of Gloss-Coat, and whether say, if we got tar on it, we could wipe that off with mineral spirits or IPA without affecting the Gloss-Coat the way we could with OC 2.0? And what about Iron-X, Tar-X, FerreX?

    Mineral spirits depends on the content (paint remover type), none of the rest will hurt it.

    I`m talking about things like odorless mineral spirits, Tarminator, Turtle Wax Tar Remover, I`m imagining that those aren`t the "paint remover type" and they aren`t much different than Tar-X or Trix or FerreX as far as solvent makeup.

    At any rate, it sounds like Gloss-Coat is pretty much as chemical resistant as OC 2.0?
