    I've seen videos of it, but never tried it myself. It does look pretty slick though

    I just tried it again after sanding it all off last night it looks real good this time the key is letting the activator set for 15 sec witch is hard it looks as tho your film is sinking oh and dipping really slow

    Do you think it will last as long as paint?

    I have notice that moisture in the air makes the film wrinkle and when you try to use it there is air bubbles that keep it from sticking to your part

    That looks sweet. There's a guy here in N.GA. that does that too, Deer skulls with antlers,guns, knives,etc. Never thought about jeep parts though. Very cool.
