I did mine in January and still looks great. All I did was clean with q-tips and rubbing alcohol. Then sprayed 4 very light coats with 15-20 min. Dry time between coats.

It will get bubbles if you do the coats to thick and not enough dry time to make each coat just a little tacky to touch.

I'm in the process of doing that too. I think we picked a bad time for it cause some of the parts i painted got a little bubbly but i think it's just because i chose to do it at the coldest time of the year like a dumb @$$

If you spray too closer, put on thick coats, or not wait between coats you run the risk of bubbling

I'm interested in doing mine so, simple question, what kind of enamel are you using? With a follow up question- what do you use to remove emblems? Thanks.

Like any adhesive product you need to prep really well. Clean, scuff, clean, light coats and let them flash in between or you will get the bubbles.
