    ^ I was in halfords today discussing that with one of their staff (actually found some one decent to talk to for once!)

    He swares by the stuff, uses it on his Mk2 escort mexico for shows, was interested in learning more.

    Still think i'll take it to the pro's to get it done properly and all further work I do will be to top it up (in a manor of speaking)

    I would've voted "No, I do it by hand because I like my paint ON the car"

    I think this method is best left to the pro's
