Well yeah, it's no DSLR or anything, but for us amateurs who can't see spending 500 bones on a camera they work just fine, lol.

So, does your mom know you're hanging her 100 dollar camera out the window of a moving vehicle? :lol:

LOL your mom owned you thats horrible! The UPOL can be had by a simple google search, and if you didn't sand that much the paint won't last long. Just be careful you also have no UV protection.

If you wax those and then intend on clearing them, it will make it a much more difficult task than it should be. Not to mention after painting something you shouldn't wax it for at least 30 days to allow the solvents to adequately evaporate. If you trap the solvents you can end up with lifting. They'll be okay for a short time just know that they will chip, fade in the future without it. How long that takes is anyone's guess, its all relative.
