打蠟﹕Opti-Seal/CG Black Light 先後順序

想請教是否先上 Opti-Seal﹐乾咗之後再上 Black Light?  定還是調番轉﹖

下次計劃咁做﹐唔知要玩幾耐

1. 洗車推呢膠
2. Menzerna Super Finish SF-4000 拋光
3. Opti-Seal
4. Black Light
5. Collinite 845

BL BEFORE OS.
In fact I would use 845 before OS too.

Thank you for the reply PPLd ching.

But...I thought OS has a much stronger bonding to the body paint than the other product.  So even if BL/845 layer get washed off, OS is still there to protect the finish.

If I do it the other way around like you suggested and knowing BL/845 has a weaker bond than OS.  Would that mean I will lost the OS layer much quicker?

lawlaw01,

I can understand your concern about bonding and durability issue.
BL is a cleaner glaze wax so it should be bottom layer.
For 845 vs OS, 845 should be placed under OS.  2 reasons.
1. 845 last longer than OS.
2. OS will migrate to under 845, IF OS BOND STRONGER than 845.  IF OS DOES NOT BOND STRONGER, IT WILL REMAIN ON TOP.

It is hard to believe, but Optimum does make some magical products.

So you are saying 845 will outlast OS?  

If that's the case, then of course it makes sense to do 845 first.

PPLd,

Another question for you...how does the BLACKFIRE Crystal Seal Paint Sealant compare to OS?  Most people said the BF is easier to apply than OS and last longer too....

lawlaw01,

Sorry I have never tried BFCS, I "only" have UPGP, OS, OS 2012 New Formula.

Never compared these 3 side by side, but they all apply extremely easy: wipe on and walk away, result in a good durability of roughly 3 months from 1 layer.  Come back 1 hour later and put on second layer for super look and increased durability.  If anyone tell you BF is easier to apply, he must be splitting hair here.  Serious, who need something easier than a cheat?

If you are looking for more durability, you should look into Menz Power Lock.  Not a WOWA, but sososo easy to wipe off I think you might be able to blow its residue away and very slick too.  Only thing I dislike about MPL is that it doesnt smell like Meguiar's products but hey, Megs NXT sucks big time if you compare it to MPL.

Another good choice is BFWD, really similar to MPL and imo the best liquid protection coming from PBMG.  MPL probably last slightly longer than BF tho (4.5m vs 4m?)..
Optimum is one of my favourite brands when it come to detailing.  Their products really work well and their claims are real.  Not easy if you ask me.

PPLd,

As always I really appreciate your feedback.

BTW...I forgot to ask about instant detailer.  Now I am narrowed down to either CG P40 you recommended before, or the Optimum Instant Detailer & Gloss Enhancer.  

Which will work better with the product I selected above?

lawlaw01,

Regarding detailer spray, if you ask me to choose between CG P40 or OID, I would go for OID.

I buy cheap I buy trice.  OID32 should be diluted 1:4 distilled water and give u 1.25 gal of QD spray, which will last you quite some time.  And since OS may be your last step, OID should work better together.  (But Optimum screw Collinite big time)

While I recommend OID, I dont mean P40 is bad, or OID is the best QD spray out there.  In fact P40 is a great spray wax and OID works as claimed.  BUT the only QD I use now is Ultima Waterless Wash Plus.  Cleans better, works slicker, looks better, protects better, best of everything it dilutes 1:43 and even work on interior plastic, leather and fabric!
