I use Meguiars Ultimate Compound applied with a dual action polisher and 5" foam heavy polishing pad. I use the green, Hex Logic pads, but any brand of polishing pad will do also. It restores all the front guards to new. Of course you could use any light compound and a soft cotton cloth, but the polisher takes all the work out of it and takes way less time.

You can if itís perforated...could look really neat with the right graphic of some natural view! Our bedroom is in the front, so the curtains are usually closed anyway.

Our wrap was made by FastSigns for $290 installed, from a picture we took while camping in Yosemite. It is perforated, so you do have some view from the inside looking out in daylight.

The wrap looks awesome! It is one of those "didn't know it existed but now I have to have it" moments.

Yes you can see through the print as others have mentioned. Fast signs and other shops like that can print / install. Just insist on 3M product.

Here were the high runners (my photos) that I put together when deciding on my print.
