There's clear which you can find at ace, and there is gloss which you have to go online for. They are different.

This, and de-badge it instead of trying to plasti-dip the emblems. It will look real good with a tint and some niteshade too.

Looks like your roof came out ok. Did mine but have been taking it off since I'm going to cf wrap my roof. Found out I didn't spray all of the roof thick enough so the thin areas won't peel off. I have to rub and rub :(

Now that MS3 roof is painted and glossy. Wont ever get that with plasti.

and this is a great idea. that would be a good way to color match and it could clean up the look a bit.
