I will text him and find out. d

Tom said it can be done but durability will suffer.

after the coating has been cured I have suggested to many of my customers to top it with Sonax Polymer Net Shield, this is great on coatings to give it a nice shine and some very nice beading.

On top of that this is a great product for those of you that have installed clear film on your M5's and other cars.

Phil. Thanks for the quick shipping. One question:

My car received Optiguard in late November. Should I do any surface prep before applying this product? E.g. IPA wipedown or claying?

I would wash the car and there is no need to really do anything else, just apply per panel and buff off, then move on to the next panel.

take a look at some beading shot of the Sonax Polymer Net Shield after 30 days of winter in the east coast.

This is amazing. The Optiguard is good but this takes it to another level.

Can it be used on glass too?

Can the Sonax Polymer Net Shield be applied on top of Paint Protection Film such as a clear bra?

anyone with common sense and patience should be able to do this.

the prep on that other hand maybe another story but if you can do paint correction if your car needs it then you should be good to go.

It would be on a new car. I'm thinking of just using this instead

SONAX Polymer Net Shield, reviews look great on it

Fucking FedEx. I had the detailer scheduled to do this at 4:30pm but the product still hasn't arrived.

Trouble is its an aerosol so it could be send by air.

Yeah I ordered from you guys since I wanted to reward you for the great advice!

I checked FedEx Express Saver on the order, but Sue pointed out it was an aerosol and can only be shipped ground. Went out Tuesday, but didn't arrive till 8pm today.

Problem with Fedex Home delivery is they assume you won't be home till late. UPS usually delivers earlier in the day. USPS Priority Mail is the best though - would be great if that had been an option. Would have arrived Thursday.

Am hoping detailer has a cancellation tomorrow so he can fit me in.

Phil - do you know any Miami Detailers? I missed my window with my guy last week due to the FedEx delivery, and now he's on vacation for a few weeks.

Also thanks for the lollipops in the package. Nice touch.
