That looks amazing! I've always wondered what frozen interlagos blue would look like!

I haven't found it available in a can.... per their instructions you can get an airless spray. I think this formulation shouldn't be sprayed with an air can. it introduces bubbles easily.

roller was fine. I used a fine foam roller.

Right, mine is interlagos blue though. I've always wondered what it would look like matte, and now I can find out because I just ordered a gallon!

SWEET! please post here after you've done it!

It's scary when you roll it on initially because it's white but eventually it turns all clear. One note - be sure when you roll it to not leave lines - it's not too bad but if you want it perfect make sure you roll evening. Also it doesn't have to be a thick coat. A thin coat does just fine.

Will do! It'll probably be a while (month or so) before I get around to doing it. Were there instructions included with it, specifically related to prep? For example, my intuition would tell me that it would be a good idea to wax the car first to ensure that this stuff comes off easily and doesn't damage the paint.

Also, can you post some close shots? I'm interested in the evenness of the finish. It looks even in the pics you posted and I'd mistake it for paint or wrap but does it look that good up close? Thanks!

Interesting find. Please post how it holds up to highway/high speed use. Just curious as you say it peels off for pretty easy removal. Thanks.

no instructions - just that website.

I had my car detailed just before painting. The detailer actually suggested not waxing so that the coating would stick. The last thing you want is the coating to bead up or something. Trust me this stuff comes off easier than it sticks.

I'll see if I can take some pictures - pretty busy these days though... What I would do is test a few spots on your car - you'll see how easily it comes off.

That looks really good. Seems like a really easy/cheap way to try the frozen thing. I assume you just masked off non painted parts, grilles, etc. and went to work? I'd like to try this on my JB.

you just start working one of the edges - once it's up the whole thing comes up easily. check out the link shared near the beginning

have you tried it on the track yet? My local detail shop ordered one for me, they said they might peel off above 100mph?

LOL yes it may - self peel. But I've tested it up to 120 and it's fine
I've put 2-3 coats on front and leading edged. Haven't see any self-peeling yet. But I can imagine it.... It takes a bit to start the peeling - you have to find a corner or a thin spot but it comes off like saran wrap

Sorry - been busy. I didn't really "detail" the doors. I only rolled on the outward facing surface thats all.

I suppose if you want it perfectly smooth a spray on is best.

Guys keep in mind my goals are mainly to protect paint from debris and decals. (hey that rhymes)
I don't car that much about aesthetics or longevity.

I actually took a paint brush and added extra layers near the front and areas where there may be road rash. The texture is very different after drying - between rolled and brushed.

I can see myself doing this just before track days or a long trip since it's so easily applied.

Yes I will miss Brian this year - he'll be having a blast as well
But no worries, I have an equally angry co-driver who can tear up the tracks with me!
