Make sure you buff with the yellow flannel clothes. Or, if you didnt get one, use some old flannel cloth rags. It works the best. Microfiber doesnt work. Regular tshirts dont do too good. Just old and well washed flannel is the way to go.

Great info! Question tho. Flexible plastics.. Does this ( paint, not the film) hold up well to that?

I have a bike ( its all hotrodding after all.. Chevelle has a longer wait time than the bike at this moment) with some plastic bits... And it might be just the ticket to make it different from others out there.

How about Old cast aluminum Wheels, is that an option? Otherwise to me its either....
1- glass blast them and clear... Or
2- powdercoat to a cast like color.

This really looks like a viable option on the wheels....
The tires are changed with spoons anyway (plastic on the pry side)...
Thoughts?
No hijack here.. Just asking

Yes. It can do well if done correctly.
