Frozen LMB e90 oh yeah

Getting the car prepped for one lap of america beginning May 4th.
I coated the finish with a removable liquid 3M-like coating.
The roller used made it kind of matte. It looks awesome!











I was very hesitant when applying it because it looked like this:


The cool thing is after the competition I just peel it off!

That is cool as hell. I have been contemplating a frozen LMB for my car...neve heard of this roll on stuff. Those J12's look sick too...nice setup.

Note that the headlights are coated too. I wonder how they'll do at night.

I'm thinking about coating my wheels too LOL

That looks like it would serve as great paint protection - good find.

Holy crap, it looks amazing!!
Can't go wrong with $25 a gallon.

Was 1 gallon enough for the entire car?
Also, How did you apply the material, the website indicated you can use a spray paint method, did it come in an aerosol can?

I just removed some from part of the car - it couldn't come off easier - it just peels off with some fingernail action and the whole thing lifts up.

I probably used 1/8 of a gallon for the entire car. I barely made a dent in it.
I used a 4" foam roller. I think if it was sprayed it would be smoother.

The satin or "frozen" finish really accentuates the angles in the bodywork!

Sounds good, I wonder how we can get the produc in a spray can?

By the way, is the finish bearable with the roller application?
