I'm ordering a flex soon myself. I used a friends and that thing is so damn easy to use - I thought it would be a pain.

Nice, but your going to need more pads, and some polishs. 106fa, sip, 3 lc white pads, 2 lc green pads, and 2 lc black pads should do you very very well.

Knew it was going to rain, but like a little kid I had to go out and test my toys on my trunk lmao.

Trunk was wash, clayed, polished with Poor Boys SSR2.5 via Flex and half a spray of Opti-Seal. Im amd VERY impressed with this stuff.






As you can see I do not have a garage and my complex get's dusty and I needed a selant that didn't require hours of cure time. Coming week-end is supposed to be 70-80's I will then do the whole car and post better picts


The Opti-Seal went on Soooo fast. I've been a Klass Twins finatic for a long time. But I think it's going to sit on the shelf for a while lol. Though I only applied one coat the gloss was amazine, but it looks like KT's had more shine/gloss after one coat. But the ease of OS makes it a better choice for me.

Klasse

Wash, clay, polish, seal the whole car usually a few hours. But that was when I used the Klasse. Opti-Seal will take a huge chunk of time away.

Klasse AIO is still a great paint cleaner. You can use it to get rid of oxidization etc.

Optimum Poliseal replaced my Klasse AIO for that function though and I now use Klasse AIO in the door jams etc. It's still a great product.

Try optiseal with a microfiber applicator, I think MartinD made that recommendation, works great.

interesting, I figure a microfiber would soak up to much of the opti-seal. Bit I guees I'll give it a try.

It does suck up a bit more, but once its prepped it really does a great job of getting it spread out evenly. Really never have to go back and whipe off the few spots that occurs when using a foam applicator.
