    The World is About to Change

    At SEMA 2018 Optimum announced their Clear Coat Restorer, and it seems like it's going to be for sale soon. There is a demo video floating around on YouTube, and, well, I hope they have a lot queued up in the warehouse, because this stuff is going to be flying off the shelves, it looks like a miracle in a bottle.

    It's quite expensive and it has a short shelf life once opened, and they show having to wear a respirator during application, but I think it's going to be a game changer for certain situations. Time will tell.

    It's "self-leveling" so theoretically it may less tricky than some traditional coatings, but we'll have to see until some members have experience with it.

    I think this is the ultimate culmination of Anthony Orosco's musings to Dr. G about a product "that just wiped on then evaporated" that resulted in Opti-Seal, Opti-Coat, etc., if any of you know what I'm talking about.

    My methods for applying Opti-Coat

    I don't know when AG is going to have it, they are sometimes slow to pick up new OPT products. OPT doesn't seem to be selling it yet either, but if you can find the video there may be some clues in there.

    Re: The World is About to Change

    Just to chime in...

    Dr. David Ghodoussi told me about a new product for neglected gel-coat that after washing/prepping the finish you would just spray this stuff on and it would make the gel-coat look new again. Don't quote me on the specfics of this product I could be wrong, working from memory.


    For those that don't know who Dr. David Ghodoussi or as most people call him, Dr. G. is, I have a picture of him in my below article and share his credentials.


    Patented UV Protection - Optimum Car Wax - by Dr. Ghodoussi at Autogeek.com



    A chemist that also worked for car paint companies to create modern clearcoat paints
    Dr. David Ghodoussi is a PhD Organic Chemist and his background includes working for many of the major paint companies that make automotive car paints. He was one of the chemists that helped to create modern clearcoat/basecoat paint technology back in the 1980's.





    I have had the good fortune of filming segments for his Optimum products on "My Classic Car" with Dennis Gage and Dr. G. has given me his permission to write and share his background when we do film these segments and as a write and a detailer, I share my perspective of Dr. G. by stating,

    If he's smart enough to make the paint he's smart enough to make the products that go on the paint"


    Great guy, great products and also has a great team!

    There is already a product like that, or very similar out. I ran into it doing a detail on a Lexus. I’ll have to look up the name.

    It is available for sale on a competitors site. Not going to say who.

    FNG here. That seems like an interesting product that could be useful for those that detail trade-ins and used cars for flipping. Even if it's not lifetime, lasting a year or more would be great.

    Let me start out by saying that I truly know nothing, and I can prove it.

    But this sounds to me like an item Optimum would set up for certified installers only.

    Just my guess.

    Definitely interesting. The technology is improving every year.

    Being a IGL installer we have IGL Eclipse which is a industrial coating and will self level when sprayed.

    This definitely seems nice for certain situations. Especially for the bumper they did a demo on

    Re: The World is About to Change

    after watching the video and reading few comments on youtube this product is not for car which is in good condition..if it can be polished then you dont need this product..plus only 30 day shelf life after opening the bottle..
