    My matte gray wrapped MS looks awesome but I freaked out the other day when suddenly all of the squeegee strokes seemed to appear. Turns out that I was viewing it through polarized sunglasses.

    No glasses (the line is my shadow):

    Wild, is it not? Has anyone else noticed this.

    Have seen this discussed on PPF installers forums as well.

    I see vertical squeegee lines on my car (XPEL Ultimate), and this without glasses...but only at a specific angle and lighting.
