Not sure if you can see but before that ugly yellow under the paint on the lower panel was showing where a previous owner had hit something.. Now it looks good as new.. :shame:

Actually considering doing my cowl panel and mirrors.. Both are are in good shape just faded.. Can't see spending that kind of money if it's not broken per say.. That said I'd love to my mirrors painted white.. Had the ones on my black car painted black and loved it!!!

I thought about that stuff.. We will how this holds up..
LoL @ Dan! I'm with you bro!!!
I'm wondering how it would do as an undercoating for fender wells and the part of the gas tank that can be seen from behind.. I've used undercoating in rattle cans in the past for fender wells but the dip is about 1/2 the price.. All in the details..

Exactly,for the fender wells,underbelly,gas tank ect it's great but it's been overdone with all the cheesy stuff.

I agree, it's fine if used properly and tastefully. I've used it for years on my tools.

I use that stuff at one of my jobs detailing.. It works good but the plastic has to be really clean or it leaves smudges and spots..
