Cleaned it really good to get all the bugs and gunk off, rubbed it down with Industrial grade Alcohol to get the wax off. Dbl checked it over and sprayed it. Used 2 cans on grill sprayed many light coats, it seem to dry /set up kinda quick. tacky but still faster than I would have thought. really cool how it self levels. Payed close attention to non-flat areas ie: light wells and vents as to not let it run, let it dry over night. Really my first time using it, but all in all pretty nice stuff, real happy with the out come hope it last.

Hey Brittni, Welcome to the Fourms!!
I am and thanks again for the great deal, love it. Sorry to hear about the code / cylinder head, what a drag. I am sure you will get it all fixed up with the warranty. Hope everything works out.

Welcome!

Don't sweat the head issue, it's a known issue and they should offer you a loaner. If they don't call Chrysler customer service and they will hook you up with one. Let us know how it turns out.
