Rubbing off gloss coat?

Recommended Posts

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?

Gloss-Coat should not come off due to aggressive rubbing (as long as you use a decent quality microfiber) - it would take more abrasion than that.  Paint Prep will not remove or degrade Gloss-Coat.
