I simply apply it in a relatively thin coat with a clean rag and let it stay there. It will not last. I have used it on dulled areas of the car's paint, too, for water sealant and short term appearance improvement. I don't remove it.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
