With Opticoat, if you have a power washer you can remove about 99% of the debris from your paint before even touching it, which greatly helps with minimizing marring.
What detailer are you using?
agreed...opti coat pro is a great product and i use it religiously. the consumer product (opti coat 2.0) is also a great product, and very user friendly.
just make sure you adopt a proper wash technique and the opti coat will last a lifetime. remember it is harder than your factory clear, but it will still scratch and swirl...most people think it is actually armour plating!
your installer looks reputable, but you can always check with optimum to make sure he is an authorized installer and using OC Pro.
