Just in case you were wondering just how well the current version of ONR cleans

It was tweaked earlier this year. Benefits of a chemist run company I guess.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Owner received a notice that they were going to power wash the garage starting with the top level. So he moved it down one level. Right where all the runoff ended up going. Originally they just offered a free car wash down the street, he refused. Was able to get them to pay for a wash, clay, polish and seal.

No pre or post rinsing. Single bucket, 1 oz of ONR to 2 gallons of water. Microfiber covered foam pad to wash, Rag Company 16 x 16 Pro Edgeless towels to dry.

I'll have to break this up into several posts since OT is still breaking links if you add too many images.

Paint is on the softer side, so Optimum Hyper Polish and a yellow Hexlogic cutting pad did a decent amount of correction.

Needed Oberk Supreme Cut on this section.

There’s one thing that you do that irritates me . Why don’t you ever spray the wheel wells with undercarriage spray. Looks like shit when it’s all gray

I am running low on Hyper Seal... I think I purchased it direct from Optimum before. It's $50 now.

Any other places carry it?

This was a tough one. Late 80s Mercedes SL. Sat outside under a tree the last 10 years his mother owned it, hasn't run in 2 years. Owner wanted it shined up enough to live with the appearance until he can sort out the mechanical issues and get it properly repainted. Top will need to be replaced too. Someone rattle canned the area around where the soft top meets the trunk lid and also around the 380SL emblem. Ugh.

Oberk Supreme Cut and their microfiber cutting pad. Multiple passes. Able to bring back the gloss, the leaf damage is too deep to remove. Maybe wetsanding would make a marginal improvement but he didn't want to spend too much since it will eventually be repainted.

Right side compounded

Fully compounded, still has leaf/tree damage visible.

Its not perfect by any means but at least its a 5' car now. Owner was very happy with the improvement.

Oberk, Hyper Polish, Hyper Seal

I did but they apparently has never been cleaned, you should have seen them before. Even dressed them. Focus wasn't the wheel wells and getting them perfect. On most cars I hit them with Power Clean and rinse them before dressing.

@Scottwax how can you ensure you get the newest ONR?

Is there a way to tell on the bottle or anything?

2019 Bentley. Owner originally had it shipped to his dad's house in Palm Springs and had a certified Opti-Coat installer in Phoenix come out and coat it. Unfortunately whoever was washing the car for his dad was doing a shitty job (contacted the person who coated it, he said the dad's Yukon looked like shit even though it was clean) and swirled up the paint. So whenever I go out to clean it up, detail the interior, etc, I compound, polish and recoat a section. So far I've redone the hood and trunk area. Didn't have the keys this time so I couldn't move it back and forth to get the rust off the ginormous rotors.

Also take care of his Range Rover. Applied Paint Guard to it about a year ago, just a wash and interior detail (wasn't bad enough for before/afters) this time.

I have no idea what would be on Amazon. They may have ample stock they haven't ordered in a while. Or they may be getting in new stock all the time. :dunno:

Unless there is a major reformulation, it won't get a "new" sticker. They just do running improvements. I noticed the last gallon I got in the paint felt slicker than usual, others had as well. Got word after that showed up on Optimum's pro Facebook page there had been a couple tweaks to the current version.
