    I`d like to know too.

    I used the G tech EXO on the matte decal on my Trail hawk and so far so good.

    The trick to it not streaking was to apply a super wet coat so that no part dried before the whole decal was coated. If I did it differently it showed the line where I stopped and started again. Until I figured that out it was frustrating. You need to wipe high spots off quickly as well. It helped to have another set of hands for this step of the process.

    Thanks!

    The owner actually ordered it with a painted matte black hood, which I coated it with CQuartz Finest too. The owner was worried about it adding gloss but I assured him it would only darken it a little. When he picked it up it was the first thing he noticed and was very happy with the darkening CQF added. The hood looked more grayish and coating it made it look much better, the wheels too.

    Yeah, the hood did soak up more coating then the rest of the paint and I had to level off high spots sooner. The blue one I did with a matte wrap acted differently and seemed more prone to streaking than this one.

    I`ve tried that CarPro masking tape on a few cars now and I love it. It`s not as thick as the 3M tape so I`ll continue to use that for masking off headlights, but for polishing paint, that stuff is awesome. I haven`t had any trouble with adhesive residue yet.

    Fantastic work!!
    I am a novice. I would like to learn to use a RUPES 15, which I just got as a birthday present. Living in NJ, there is no one who is here to show me the ropes.
    Can you recommend some one in the Tri State area?
    I own two BMW`s a 2015 428 luxery Coup, and a 2013 328 that needs some work.
    thank you

    Thanks guys!

    The tips definitely looked out of place on the M5 and needed to be adjusted, which the new owner actually mentioned. They sure sounded nice though and it was equipped with a proper manual to boot!
