    I always want to learn and expand my skills so I ordered some opticoat. This also gave me a chance to use my RUPES for the first time. I loved the Rupes!!! The album below explains my first experience with paint coatings...here ya go!

    Nicely done!

    I will say that tube should easily do 2x small SUV's, doing just paint on that car you may use 10 cc's absolutely tops, I'd expect more in the 6-8. Looks great though. Did you throw the applicator away or soak it in water/APC right after?
