Very nice, thanks for bringing this to our attention OP.

Nice winter prep product if you ask me...especially since you car spray your entire car with this!

5 day Update:

So I washed the car today and got to see how it would react to normal wash. It didn't change at all and sealants applied. But this product is still cloudy and extremely rough. It feels exactly how it looks.

No problem. Let me know if you have any questions about it or application.

Good review. I've been curious to see what the results were. I could see this being a viable/cheap option for temporary road trip protection or even to preserve parts in the winter, but it definitely doesn't look good.

Probably relying on the wax to act as a release agent when you want to remove it, otherwise it might be too difficult to remove.

For that portion of the car I would recommend getting the GM Quarter Flares . . . I've had mine on since I bought the car and my gills and rocker panels are still in fantastic shape.

I just saw this on tv and was thinking it was the answer to our prayers.

Now I'm not sure....

Did it ever clear up?

Also is it possible maybe it was put on to thick?

Could be too thick, but 3M states sweeping motion and covering an area 4 times cross-hatch style, but no never cleared up or self-leveled. This weekend I'll probably do a review on removing it.

You must absolutely use the wax. If not, go to the corvette forums and read about some nightmares without it. I've seen GREAT results with this product and then I've seen something like this post. I'm not sure what the missing variable is.
