Obviously these are just random thoughts.....

Bigpikle, if you go the States on a regular basis, have you been tempted to attend the OPT training. $1500 but includes hotels and $500 worth of goodies although 14 hour days sound a little tiring but good fun
Not really TBH.

I know Yvan and have had past conversations with Dr G about stuff. I have a lot of Opt experience and my car was the first in the UK coated with the original coating product back in about 2009 - back when people here didnt really believe coatings actually worked! If I was thinking of building a business then it would be interesting but I've polished enough cars over the years that I dont really want to spend that much just for hobby stuff these days. All I need is a few $$ of products for my regular fleet and occasional one-off customers. I'm sure it would be a great event to be part of though but I think its more aimed at pros than enthusiasts. Opt products make perfect sense for pros given the synergies allow so many less steps and saved time and product but its just not that cheap over here sadly.

No, but it does need a shake every now and again as something settles in the bottom of the bottle/can

I've used a 3yr old bottle hiding in my garage no problem.

But Im sorry. I have no experience with it because its unavailable to me as it is for you.
Big Red Sponge is now available in the UK from Motorgeek and it is worth every penny in my humble opinion.

ONR first wash for me

Seems to be very similar to Adams wedge. 32 quid is just bonkers.

B&Q grout sponges for me. Left to soak can't really be beaten for value.

Same here I've cubed my like the Big Red Sponge and they work great and are very durable!

£32 is far too much money for me to try one.

I used the B&Q sponges cut like the BRS before finally biting the bullet and coughing up for the real thing. The B&Q items do work, but they're not even close to as good as the BRS. I'd agree that it's worth it.
