Not bad. But I'm wondering about durability, and removing process.

I bought a bottle of this, I haven't had the time to apply it, but I hear nothing but good things about it.

Interesting. It says you can wax like a normal car. Why not do the whole hood ?

I would be careful with the waxing, especially near the edges. It's not as sticky as a clear bra and an edge can easily lift off...ask me how I know.

Because I've had to do a panel twice because I got too close to the edge and it peeled.

I would still go with Suntek or Xpel. Expensive yet won't turn yellowish easily, durable and offers a good warranty.

I had it done. It's glossier and a bit thinner than the Film itself.

Are you happy with the end result? Would you do it again? Just curious.

I like the fact that it looks like normal paint but I do question it's longevity and toughness over a few years
