So if i did it in an oven and then baked it at 30deg i could put a coat on every 1.5 hours in theory.

Well, yes!!! How big is your oven if you don't mind me asking? How about your car? If your car is as big as this then yes, I'd say bake away my friend

I probably wouldn't bake it at a high temp, i wouldn't go over 30deg i would say, which shouldn't be a problem i wouldn't think/

I have no idea what products are offered down in Australia but here in the states Optimum offers both Opti-Coat and Opti-Guard. Opti-Guard is only sold to authorized dealers who have to submit certain information for approval. Opti-Coat is available for all consumers. Opti-Guard flashes quicker then Opti-Coat which shortens the time available to make any corrections or smoothing out.From my understanding both have recently beed improved to allow layering. Optimum does have a detailing forum to discuss all of their products and a store w/discounts for forum members.It is ran by Chris ( who was basically in on the testing from the start) and has a Ask Dr.G section that the gentleman behind this product will answer any questions you may have. Putting this coating on is fairly easy and doesn't take long to get the hang of. Just remember that all paint corrections must be done before application of either product because once applied the imperfections will remain visible until the coating is removed.

I am pretty sure this is not correct, Opti-Coat and Opti-Guard canb e layered but from my personal experiences and test I have seen the second at less than half the thickness of the first (using a paint depth gauge, and taking 10 reading from the same spot to get an average as .5mm could vary the thickness in paint by a couple micron)

In saying this also another thing I am pretty sure about but OPT could chime in is you cant layer once cured it has to be done within the first 30 minutes.

Regards,

Mitch
