The steps I'm sure you know. My wheels have chrome lips so I spent extra time sanding down the wheel so the product would stick. Sanding down the curb rash also worked well.

I have one last wheel to do. Last week I had to stop spraying the 3rd wheel and peel it off. It was super hard to get it off. It came off one small piece at the time. If you do this don't use a can that is almost empty. Also, there is a time limit to finish all the paint coats in one hour. After 1 hr. the new coat ruins the rest. After a week and the product is set, it is possible to do touch ups to repair new damage.

Looks really good. Did you use any adhesion promoter?

Pre sanding and a final clean with alcohol. I got the interior door access pointpoint done since it needed to match the exterior. It's not a good location for the product but it needs to be removable.
