One more thing... After two weeks you need to give the paint a very THOROUGH wax to keep the finish protected.

The clear makes a hard shell over the paint so if you get light scratches it never reaches the paint.

Practice on your spare wheel first?
Yeah I will practice on my spare will first, I will take your advice.
