Could you take some more pictures in the sun light?
Sure, the sun started going down as we were finishing. I'll take some pictures. I'll be doing one last full coat next week just kicks. Rims might go flat black as well.

Nice work.. How does it look as far as imperfections? My buddy did his flight helmet and even on that small area he had a couple. He bumped it on something and it started peeling too. I hope that doesnt happen with road debris on your car.

Depends on how many coats he applied. We applied about six coats. I also took it out for a drive while it was raining, so far so good. We'll see how it holds up. You can always quickly touch it up if it messes up that bad. This week Iíll be able to test the durability of the product like highway driving, the nice hot and humid Florida weather and rain.

No, not smooth like vinyl. It has a kind of rough feel to it, but a smooth overall texture.

I'm in for updates. I was under the impression that it only lasted for like 1-3 months under normal driving conditions but maybe that was just for wheels. Looks good though
