Just make sure you apply thin even coatings, you don't want to see any lines of sealant otherwise they may show up after buffing. As a novice, I'd do one panel at a time. Apply and then buff off after 5 minutes, then move on to the next panel. Less is more.

Preparing the paint is just as critical as applying the sealant. I recommend doing a wash, claybar, alcohol bath, polish, alcohol bath again, then sealant. If you need any help feel free to PM me. I always prefer doing things myself and saving money, so good luck.
Hey seriously thanks for all the help! I'll let you know If I get down to doing that. I would just need that product, I have everything else. And hey we are do it yourselfers at heart haha. Keep up the good work buddy
