I'm not impressed. LOL daily driver is one of the best cars to put a good finish on.







Been thru Zaino, Adam's, Pinnacle, BlackFire. Also have used Meguiars, Mothers, and most other off the shelf stuff. When I posted about OC, it's because its nothing like anything before it. The tech is much better, and its been engineered. Not just thrown out onto the market like a lot of other snake oil. The 2 cars I also own above, built by my own hands, detailed by my own hands. I got a lot of experience in high end race/show cars and I'll say it one more time....OC 2.0 is the truth.

Howzit! Nice cars I was wondering how you felt about Permanon? When I bought my truck in January a friend of mine let me try some of his Permanon to protect the paint ASAP and to hold me over till I get my own sealant. I am preparing to reapply a sealant this summer and I was gonna just pick up some Permanon untill I saw this post. You seem very experienced, knowledgeable, and technical, so I am curious to hear your opinion.

Permanon is good stuff. To tell you the truth, I was actually pretty happy with the Collinite 845 on white, but the trump card was a permanent sealant like OC2. I am using my Tacoma as a test bed for both my Viper and Vette. I am pretty certain I will be using OC2 on both of them. I would recommend it. The surface tension on the water beads from the OC2 are pretty nuts. Big beads on the paint and plastic. I also applied it to the fender flare underside. Doesn't get stuck sap, tar, etc.....I'd say drop by PakShak, tell them S7ICKlVlAN sent ya, and get their insights to what you're contemplating.

OP, ok so I am a diehard zaino fan. Nothing I've tried comes close to the shine protection and durability of zaino.

You're saying this stuff is better?

If it is, I might have to give it a shot

Wow OP. That is a great write-up. I've never even heard of anything you refer to but that's probably because I don't know shit about detailing. I've got so many mods lined up this isn't the top of my priority list, but I am seriously considering this at some point in the future. Did I mention, Great Write-Up?

OMG are you people really that gullible? S7ICKlVlAN no offense but that product and the people selling it are completely full of shite! There is no such thing as a permanent coating unless you want me to 600 grit your whole truck and put some more clear on it. Ask any autobody guy you want. That stuff or anything claiming to be "permanent" is a complete LIE. And as for research, don't believe everything you read on an internet website, especially when they are asking you to buy something.

I'm gonna stick to twice a year with my local guy who does a full detail, wash, wax with Colonite, and cleans the engine bay for $125. Well worth the money IMO.

forana - Sorry for the late response. Yes it is a superior product. I have used Zaino in the past (for years actually) and this is better.

themosjohn - Thanks my friend. It's been a long time since I've been on the Vette forums.....I should get back on there.

penguins - Thanks brutha. Hope it can help you out. Check out the Autogeek forums.....A wealth of knowledge.

1C - You got any references proving it's "complete shite"? I referenced a site for you with lots of industry professionals buzzing about this product. They have used just about everything worth trying and are very excited about OC2. Removal has to be mechanical (buffed) off, but using 600 grit on any finished surface is ridiculous. You would need to use a good compound and foam pad to remove it. Perhaps a little more research would go a long way.

Cantsitstill - By all means. It's not for everyone.

Yeah my reference is my ASE master certification in collision repair and finish, good enough? Let me expand, that little tube is more than enough for a whole car right?? And it is supposedly 2 microns thick right?? Well to compare, an average factory clear is about 2.5 mils thick or about 63 microns, repeat 63 microns and your expert info you referenced says that "Opti-Coat 2.0" is more scratch resistant than a polyurethane clear coat?? Come on dude, think about it. It's common sense. And if it was some super duper new fandangled chemical concoction better than your modern clear coat, wouldn't manufacturers be coating every new car with this instead of polyurethane?? Wheels starting to turn for anybody????

Not trying to bash here, just trying to educate so people don't waste their money. As for having to be removed with compound, more like a couple car washes. It's a glorified concentrated wax, nothing more. Sorry to burst anyone's bubble but I'm sure everyone has heard "If it's too good to be true...........probably isn't"

And no, sanding with 600 or 400 in preparation to apply additional coats of clear is actually pretty standard procedure, you might not of understood what I was saying but anyway.

Opti-Coat = Snake Oil
