So today was my first day trying out some OPT products on my wifes car...I hope to get to my Ram next week with a similar process, but i wanted to share my experiences with some new products to me, that i think i might review if there is any interest...
It took me me quite a bit of time to dial in a good combo fort this detail for some reason. My goal was as much correction as possible (on paint that isn’t too bad) to Opti Coat as an LSP.
Here goes. Ill list the products used with the images.
Prior to CG CWG
After CG CWG (I found it to have some good cleaning abilities, but too much gloss left behind IMO for stripping LSP which is nattys liquid blue and WGDGPS).
CG CWG didn’t really touch the KAIO on the windows.
Next was decontamination with the Ultima Elastrofoam block...did leave some light marring, but really cleaned the paint nice.
Some marring on the painted plastic bumper shroud...
So now with the polishing...I used Optimum Polish II and I started with an Optimum MF polishing pad. I liked the pad, but I didn’t seem to get the correction I was looking for, for some reason...I used the PC at speed 5, and it finished nice, but still had some slight correction needed...so I swapped out the mf for a LC HT Tangerine and the Polish II, and finished with LC HT Crimson and polish II.
Here is a shot of the area behind the rear window...I don’t know if you will see the swirls in this (camera isn’t the greatest) but the first one shows the swirls, the second shows the correction with the LC HT Tangerine and finish polish II.
