The main issue with it besides the obvious butchery of which i am certain was there prior to being spray wrapped is the affect the solvents of the spray vinyl had on the paint itself, I stayed well clear of applying this product simply because i couldn't get a ********** answer from them about whether or not the solvents would affect the paint beneath.

Ahhhh right sorry misunderstood. So basically it was plasti dipped (or similar) and that's what's mullered the paint!

I have always though it was more than a bit iffy doing a whole car, yeah the odd component or grille but not the whole car. It smells noxious enough as it is.

Was the owner chuffed?

crikey, ill certainly not be using that stuff again

ill have to agree with you that it does damage the paint.

i sprayed quite a few bits with the branded stuff, in matt black, mainly over chrome, and plastic chromed badges / trim, when it came time to remove, it removed all the plastic chrome coating, and even left pitting in the plastic, so theres something very harmful in it

I have seen this a lot on various surfaces when using any of these coatings. They are working on formulas specific for automotive applications, but they were not designed for it. They will damage plastics and paint....great restoration and here's hoping that people educate themselves before destroying there vehicles with this junk.
