Sonax Polymer Net Shield

Picked up some Sonax Polymer Net Shield and did my car yesterday. This stuff is amazing! Says it lasts for 6 months, couple of my friends confirmed that it is definitely long lasting.

A little harder to apply than most LSPs-it's an aerosol can that you spray onto an applicator but when wiping it on, it's a little grippy. Doesn't really glide back and forth well, though removal is easy.

The Net Shield is holding up well after several washes. And honestly, I look forward to rain because of it's water sheeting/beading.

Actually I had thought about doing shadowline but funny thing is as more people start doing those mods, mine becomes more "unique" in stock form.

It's funny, my 325is has more mods, cosmetic and performance, than my 335i.

hey Jed, when you apply the net shield you always do it when the paint is cool and everything is completely dry, correct?

I've been using a tire gel foam applicator and i guess i'm doing it okay, but for some reason i feel like the sealant isn't staying on the paint long enough after it has cured and all...

mind taking me through the steps you go though when applying? thanks
