Opti-Coat 2.0

So I did a little searching and saw a lot of people said they were getting Opti-coat 2.0 but didn't see any solid reviews or follow ups. How is it holding up for you guys, any regrets? How much did you pay to have it done? I'm thinking of having it done soon, but my truck sits outside all day and night, so i'm worried about the 30 day "Curing/ Hardning" time after its put on. Any thoughts?

Did mine a couple years ago and holding up great. Still slick and beading and able to maintain it with rinseless or waterless washes. I will top it occasionally for some extra shine with Optimum Car Wax. My truck also sits out 24/7 and no issues. It rained a few days after I applied it. I don't think I would of done it if I had to pay someone to do it though, I'm cheap though.

I also did my wheels when I got them and makes them so easy to clean brake dust, even with rinseless or waterless wash.

I used to keep up on the detailing forums but don't anymore so not sure if there have been any improvements or better options.

After you first applied it, did you have to keep your truck pretty much spotless for the first month to avoid any imperfections in the coating? How much does the extra coating help against starches and chips due to daily driving?

Thanks for taking the time to answer, I'm digging the look of your truck btw.

I tried not to touch it for the first month, just let it get dirty, it did rain a few times, but I never applied any detergents or cleaners to it.

My hopes were that the coating would help somewhat with the soft paint getting swirled up and chip resistance like u say. However that was not the case, still get the swirls and chips as I did before. I will spot polish scratches and reapply coating. It has maintained it's slickness though.

I've opticoated a few cars but by no means an expert. I find that black is definitely the hardest to get it flawlessly applied and also shows most flaws after. So this leads to polishing ( removes opticoat) to correct the paint then reapply coating.

The harder part of the process is correcting the paint properly before applying the coating. Since after you apply the coating and you get new paint imperfections then u will remove the coating on the areas you correct again with compound/polish. Don't be intimated to do it yourself, people make it sound like brain surgery but it's simple really.

Go into it with realistic expectations, it's a great product but not a force field

24 hours and you can do whatever you want to your finish, the resin continue to harden throughout the next 30 days from heat & sunlight. Don't worry you can wash your car or drive in the rain after 24 hours.

It's enough to do truck twice if applied properly

If no longer having to wax or bucket wash your vehicle is a downside then those are the only two I can think of, other than that there are no downsides that I've found

You'll get about 20cc's in a syringe it will take about 10 cc's to complete your truck. Don't forget the headlights and wheels.
