I'll check with the detailer to see if he's OK with me posting the $. It was pretty expensive, though, not the $350 or thereabouts that one encounters on some of these boards.

My understanding is that Optiguard is the "pro" product sold only to licensed dealers/applicators, whereas Opticoat 2.0 is the consumer version of the product. There is something called Opticoat 1.0 which might be Optiguard. I have the impression that only Opticoat 2.0 is available for consumer purchase for DIY application.

I wasn't able to find a main site for whoever makes Optiguard/Opticoat. The CEO and other execs from the company do post frequently on car boards, but I don't see a main site. I also haven't seen a list of local companies/people that do it. I found my local guy b/c he was recommended on a few car board posts; otherwise it's pretty tough to find people. Probably have to call the local detailers and look for someone who does it.

hope that's helpful -- if I get/find some more info on this, I'll post it.
