I was applying a trim dressing on the weatherstripping and rubber of my vehicle and had excess product on the surrounding painted surfaces, which have all been gloss coated. The excess dressing/residue is paint safe but just needs to be wiped down after but it was a somewhat stubborn to remove and required some pressure on the towel. My question is, would the gloss coat be affected due to hard rubbing and towel friction? Would a recoat in those areas be needed and how would I be able to tell?
Also a side question, does paint prep remove gloss coat or degrade it?
