    I'm on my 5th gallon of this stuff. I use it as a drying agent and I wash 2 of our vehicles per week. I know that once I started using it as a drying agent that it seems sufficient and the car doesn't require much else. If I feel the paint is getting in need of clay I will clay followed by 360 followed by 476s and then followed by OCW as a weekly drying agent.

    One thing for sure, once I started using it as a weekly drying agent the paint always pops and beads like a mother whenever it rains. Once a week is probably overkill but it certainly is doing no harm, either.

    My RS gets a different treatment because it is garaged and rarely driven except on weekends and on track days. It gets WDGPS followed by Fuzion followed by Fuzion Spray Wax as a drying agent. It only gets washed once a month because it sits in the garage most of the week. I haven't had to polish it with something like 360 yet. The paint is still perfect.

    Just to add....


    Optimum Car Wax Meme


    My friend Alejandro Bonilla on Facebook, he's from San Jose, Costa Rica, took this picture I posted last week while on the set of "My Classic Car" and turned it into a meme






    Ha ha....


    Thanks Alejandro!

    Not to bring up an older thread, but how does Sonax BSD compare to the Optimum Car Wax? Sonax BSD offers some protectant, but doesn’t mention anything about UV protection.

    I will be using BLACKFIRE One Step topped with Sonax PNS and then BSD for “upkeep” and touching up. This is my Miata which is the daily driver and sits outside most of the time.

    There are so many products out there that it’s hard to keep up!

    EDIT: After re-reading the Sonax PNS description, it looks like it too protects against UV rays and more.

    “This new generation of polymers produces crisp, clear reflections while protecting paintwork from UV rays, acid rain, bird droppings, airborne contaminants and even road salt.”

    I believe most products used for paint “protection” have UV protection to a point. The Optimum car wax just has a patented type they advertise as such

    True but from my understanding, the up protection actually migrates into the clear coat and doesn’t sit on top like typical waxes or sealants. That is why it is a patented process.

    Yep, that's how I was reading into it as well. Well, I'm not going to let the Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer go to waste either. Maybe I'll look into this as the replacement.
