Below is a thread from last year where an Opti-Coat user attempted to correct some clear coat failure. The surface is machine polished and Opti-Coat is hand applied (better results would have been achieved by airbrush obviously).
15 months later, the results are quite interesting.
Here is an update for this Opti-Coat review on failing clear coat. This review is also now at the two year mark.
Some close ups of the paint condition before application (note this is not a single stage acrylic paint system that has simply oxidised)
Area is taped up ready for compounding
50/50 shot of the area after compounding and the original damaged surface
Now, obviously not every car with clear failure can be saved. It's not uncommon to see the clear peeling off in sheets which is well beyond saving. But in this case, we can display how Opti-Coat will protect even the worst factory paintwork after 2 years.
Here are some 2 year update pictures
And last but not least, full sun shot. Look at that metallic flake!
