So I know what opticoat is but does it prevent swirl marks? Looks awesome though!

nothing prevents swirl marks, although it makes it harder to get them.

so could you correct the swirl marks while the opticoat is still on?

This.

You should get your paint/clearcoat, in the best condition possible BEFORE you apply OC. Once it's applied, you'll have to polish it off to get to the swirls underneath.

So basically opticoat is an extra clear coat. Ok and lets say you get scratches on opticoat when you take it off will it reveal a flawless paint finish underneath it

Looks great I have been contemplating this but I don't know what I'd do with all my spare time if I didn't have to wax my car all the time. Seriously looks fantastic.
