Well, it smells like your big buddy after a week long chili eating contest.
I rubbed it for 10 minutes straight and had to keep applying the stuff. Looked midnight black with the gel on after 10 minutes. Rinse it off pretty grey but super promising.
Applied the “sealer” smells just like gasoline.
Touched it with a blade and it comes right off. Lighter that scratching a lottery ticket…
I don’t think it was worth it, I tried, hope I saved some of you the money. I am sure it would look cool but you would definitely have silver stripes after the first use. a quick rub with the steel wool and it is easily down to 50% grey. Seems to just put some sort of thin layer of oxide on it. Looks like the gel is a no go.
