    From what you know when is this stuff going to be out? Is it bigger than the gay 6 oz Zaino CS bottle? Can you use it over a nuba or sealant.

    Well I have you another question, Im really fucking up with my detailing as of late. Its all on my car thankfully and I attribute it to that I havent used the PC since november but anyways, do you prep your pads before buffing? I find my rotary is skipping and leaving holograms as of late.

    It was 81 here two weeks ago and tomorrow its supposed to snow!! :madfawk:

    if i had to guess, it will be a quart size for ~$20. if it's the same as other stuff.


    as far as the pads, a little mist of water or QD, should take care of it. i spritz mine 2 or 3 times and kinda rub it in.

    I know the price and size but until it is released, I can't say what it is. I can tell you you will get more product for less $$$ than you do with Clear Seal.

    What pads are you using? When were they last cleaned?

    Sometimes it depends on the polish but with Optimum, I don't do any priming. Just apply product to the pad, move the pad around on the paint before starting the buffer. Seems to work fine.

    Could just be the pad has a few dry spots that are catching. :dunno:

    Edit: This is for Poli-Seal, not Opti-Seal. My bad....

    Autogeek has it listed on their site: http://www.autogeek.net/32ozoppo.html $19.99 for 32 oz.

    That is Poli-Seal, not Opti-Seal. Great product though, very fine polish that will remove light defects and lay down a sealant/carnauba blend of protection. You can use it as a one step, final polish and sealant after polishing or as a base for carnaubas or Opti-Seal.

    i didn't like the poli-seal. i applied it using wolfgang white polishing pad. i used small amounts and it went on very dry. then i glopped the shit all over the pad, and it was still pretty dry. don't know what i'm doing wrong with it. i was pretty dissapointed, considering the results i got from OC and OP.

    It just goes clear really quick, but it still is able to polish out light defects. As long as the pad feels damp from the product, you are fine.

    werd....on another note, is opti-seal going to be a liquid like poli-seal or a spray wax? or can you tell yet? if spray, is it a thick spray/gel or more of a mist like pinnacle crystal mist?

    Opti-Seal is a spray that you lightly spritz on a foam hand pad and gently work into the paint as you spread it around. One ounce of product should be enough for 4-6 cars, maybe more.

    Bryce the DP cleaner is great stuff! I've got a tub of that stuff from autogeek.net and washed many pads with it. Just ordered two more from them today. :)

    Opti-Seal is being shipped on Monday to distributors. Suggested price is $24.95 for an 8 oz bottle, which should be enough for 50+ cars.
