    Would any wax or sealant be safe on this? I was considering just putting some NPP Sealant on there after a nice little washing, would this be alright?

    you ever done a plane before? from what i understand, there are many sensors and such on the exterior. but otherwise, I'd probably use some Collinite 845 Insulator Wax, just cause it's so damn tough. Plane paint doesn't experience the same conditions that car paint does.

    most the times they experience far worse. Hitting bugs and rain at a minimum of 150mph does lots of damages on the leading edges.

    Be smart, don't push on stuff even if it moves and be very careful around any type of antenna. Most paints are not protected in the same manner as car paints so paint correction is very difficult. Any idea of the type? High wing, long wing, jet?
