Here's some very non-professional tips. It works better with a high quality brush but the cheap foam brushes work pretty well too.
After you brush it on wait 5 minutes or so before you put it in the sun. The brush marks level out on their own pretty well. It takes a few minutes.
It sands like a rock after 5 minutes in the sun. I start with 220. 2 coats will be more than you need for anything but flake.
It's brittle. I sparkled a hard hat and it chipped pretty bad. The plastic bends but not the finish.
It smells like plastic for a week or so after you're done. It's not overwhelming but it's not an air freshener.
I have some left if there's something you want me to try and I've used it on a few projects if you have any questions.
