I chose the high end dealership for at least the winter as my wife is starting chemotherapy. On top of that I am working through my third year of accounting. Made sense for me to not have to worry about generating work through the winter, which so far has been steady. Around April I will post on my site what I will be doing for the year, mobile or not or maybe both.

Thanks to all those who have had work done, anyone is free to email me any questions they have about Opticoating or detailing in general.

Another little side note, Optimum has 3 more coatings soon to be released. One for headlight restoration, one for glass and even an interior coating for leather and vinyl I believe.

Congrats!

The only downside (and not really one) to Opti-Coat is it doesn't have the same "slickness" as good sealants. However pick up some CarPro Reload, do a little spray on wipe off action, and it's as slick as the Gulf of Mexico!

Problem is Opti-Coat sheds it fast, so it doesn't last, but it's nice just before a car meet, or when trying to impress DA LADIES!

Larry from Wisdom sells it: http://www.wisdomdetail.ca/car_pro/C..._Spray_Sealant

You can do local pickups through him.

Or Eshine has it:

But you gotta pay shipping with them.

Wow, didn't know that.. Dr. G is on fire. I love their products.

Bryan, I just ordered a Griot's RO from Larry. Also picking up one of those nanoskin pads for claying. Gonna "fix" my wifes CR-V Expect questions

I didn't go hog-wild buying a collection of Menzerna, rather I'm picking up some of the Optimum Hyper Polish, and will try some white and maybe Orange pads to get the feel for it. If it works, great! If I need more aggressive i'll get the Menzerna. Sound like a good approach?

I wouldnt say on fire. Many things they come out with have had many years of testing. Just a timing thing I am sure.

So Excited-- Opti-Guard being applied today

So excited that Bryan from Concours Touch is applying the Opti-Guard today. I highly recommend him as do others on the board for a great price. I'll post some pics of before and after later today.

Well worth the 350 bucks to get it done. For those still sitting on the fence, do yourself a favour and get it done. You'll be happy you did.

Cheers

Chris
