The description of the product also mentions that it can be waxed and polished just like a regular paint job, absorbs impacts like a 3M clear bra, and is totally peelable.
The owner goes further to explains the process which consists of four coats of a black undercoating, four coats of the actual paint with a flex agent and two coats of a clearcoat.
But what was the color of choice? None other than the one of the most beautiful blue shades every offered by BMW – San Marino Blue.

The painting process took three days, and, as you can see below, the results were amazing.
