    How would paint sealant remove orange peel? That makes no sense.

    I love the black roof on your Charger, that looks tight!!! I may look at doing that instead of a hood wrap.

    Yes wrap the roof would look the same as the paint. I love the look, have not seen a black painted roof other then mine yet but I am sure they are out there or coming.

    My guess is that it intensified the gloss giving the illusion that it filled texture, even though we all know better.

    That's exactly right. Some products do contain heavy fillers which can temporarily 'hide' surface texture, but the only way to actually remove or 'take out' texture such as orange peel is through the use of abrasives; usually sanding to level.

    What are the opinions on the clay bar? I've used them in the past and they do seem to make the pain feel smoother, i.e. actually working, but I've heard from others that it's just a gimmick. Thoughts?
