HI all -- strongly thinking of getting the Opti-coat pro treatment (although I could use some more independent opinions on the reasons it's worth it / long term experienced benefits seen by others), but I have a question first:
The shop says that even on a new vehicle (within days of delivery) needs to have various things corrected about the paint itself -- you probably cannot just put the coating on straight, without any prep work.
Is it possible to tell if the car finish is in good enough shape that significant prep work isn't required? What signs / defects would I look for?
