Doh, I saw someone demonstrated the application in the sun before. Thought it would be ok.
The traces are still removable with the blue pad and the finishing foam. I need to ask why do I need to reapply the whole thing again? Most of the panels are perfectly fine. I thought the coating is so tough (after 24 hours) than you need to use compounding and cutting pad via machine to really remove it. The blue pad and the finishing polish shouldn't removed the entire coating at all.
As I said, when I did a light hand polish on those traces, it requires several tries to get it. There were some really isolated high spots that weren't obvious at all (in a fairly hideous spot). I could not remove them with this combo at all. This give me the impression the coating is quite tough already.
And again, when I did remove those traces, and compare to the area right next to it with a perfect coat, there was no differences at all from naked eye in the best light source.
I'm going to leave it and use water to test for beading. If the "polished" area don't bead at all, then I will know the coating was completely removed.
Just don't feel like polishing the whole car again because ...
- My RA polisher broke done.
- It was faulty and killed my two orange pads, purchased from oversea.
- The whole polishing process took me a whole week, 10+ hours (spread across every night), taken an extra leave, plus I hurt my arms because I wasn't holding the machine correctly.
You can say I'm not so keen to do a compound cutting on the whole car again. heh
