    Check out how well it is still shedding water. The owner has done nothing more than wash it and has even allowed dealerships to send it through the automated car swirler...errr wash.

    The opti coat is good stuff and will hold up as long as the prep work is done correctly ... Have been thinking of doing my truck with it? But I have a lot of other good products to use up first...

    Yes. It's all about the prep work.

    cool post

    I find much of the same. A vehicle with Opti-Coat the water just behaves differently even compared to a freshly waxed car. The water almost bounces off the surface with the pressure washer
