1) Will the Xpel adhere properly with the bumper hood and fenders coated in Hard Body or should I not hardbody these areas?

2) If answer to one is no, then how do I gloss the Xpel to match the gloss on the rest of the car? Would Wolf's body wrap work on the Xpel film?
Your installer will strip off any type of 'wax' product wherever the Xpel is being installed so don't waste your time having the front clip done. BTW I had the front clip done on my car and it looks great.
Hard Body is a coating. It won't come off with a wax removing cleaner. To remove it you have to polish it off.
