so far i had the same impression with the optibond. i tried it full strength and 1:1 and only found it spread better at 1:1, but seemed to give the same results either way.

i tried it on the fronts (again i didn't clean the tires all that well before use), but to be fair, i want to clean the tires with APC first then try again.

they have both had great reviews, so im sure they will be fine when applied porperly.



sorry ghost rider, im not sure what SVRT is...
Sounds about right. OB needs 100% clean tire, and HD just needs a clean tire, just washed with soap but nothing super special. I have my HD bottle at 3:1 right now and it just darkens the rubber enough for me.

OB is my favorite on some tires, but it struggles on the tires that are dirty.

It also makes your tires look deep black and new without a super shine.
SVRT, or Super Vinyl Rubber Trim is Adam's offering for a dressing. It is like Optibond that it is an opaque milky water based dressing. Both can be diluted and perform similarly.

Give HD time, it has risen to the top for me. I mist the tires and let it sit until it starts to dry, then I remist and spread it evenly. It works great on wheel wells also.

oh..actually it was the adams APC. i was thinking of getting into distributing the Adams line, but honestly the only thing i tried in the sample sizes i liked was the undercarraige spray, and cant back anything i didnt like...but to be fair, i never tried any of the polishes/waxes.sealants. alot of guys swear by it though...

Yeah i really didnt give either the best of test on the dirty tires...i only hosed them off honestly and proably still had some PB's on them.

im definatley going to give them a good clean with some simple green or some Zep then try both again. i havent seen the HD in Canada yet, but my last trip to US, i grabbed a jug in PA and figured it should be good.

ive posted many times that i used to use exclusively meguiars stuff for 20 years or so, but recently got into trying other water based/silicone free products and find there are a great number of awesome products readily available for virtually OTC pricing.

it is called Klasse All In One. it is a cleaner wax...well sort of.

it is classified as an all in one polish, but it really isn't going to get any swirls out. it is more of a chemical cleaner with an acrylic sealant. it does a great job at cleaning paint/chrome and leaves a rock solid protection behind. again, thin is in. just apply either by hand or machine and remove. the shine is more of a "candied" look because of the acrylic, but the shine is amazing.

Exactly what I am looking for.. amazing shine! As one of the few chrome lovers of the Forum, shiny and glass-like chrome is a must for me. This will be added to my next purchase from Amazon for sure.

How do you apply it to the exterior of your windows and tail lights? Same method as the chrome?

Thanks for the full product name.. I searched KAIO and got some odd Bing search results.. LOL!

no problem!

same application method for sure!

if you're looking at picking up a new product to try, i really like the look of opti coat on chrome and exterior glass (not windshield). it is a "permanent" coating and really shines on chrome!

Yea I used to be into the Adams pretty good myself, used to hang out with Adam and crew back when they were in the small Torrance warehouse. As I grew up into detailing more and more, I started trying new product. I used to love their detail spray, but have since moved on to the Chem Guys HV7. Now the only thing I order from Adams is the In & Out spray. If you haven't already, try a can. Pretty much a tire dressing that dries to the touch in a spray can. Works wonders in areas where the wipers are, honey comb grilles, bumper pads etc. IMHO, there is just better product for the money out there.

Thanks Jay; ill have to keep it in mind, but I've been coating all my plastics with Cquartz or optic oat, and using TUF SHINE permanent Tire Dressing. not sure I'm going to need a plastic/tire dressing anytime soon!

For what it's worth [since KAIO was mentioned], it works as a great base for 845 on plastics. I've cleaned my plastic mirror housings, trim, and black plastic door handles with it before applying 845 and it does wonders.

Is Opti Coat something to apply directly and alone? Or would it require a primer or surface prep?

Thanks for that info! I just ordered some 845 so it seems I need to pick up some KAIO next.
