    Angry Matte paint repair

    I purchased a pre owned challenger t/a previous owner polished hood and appears to of added a sealant. How do I remove all the waxes and sealants? I want to return the finish back to matte.

    Duplicolor paint prep is pretty harsh stuff. Don't go near plastic.
    I would go for Klean-Strip Prep-All.

    I saw the photo you posted on the facebook group. The thing about a matte finish is that it loses its matte appearance once it is polished and then it can not be restored back to matte.

    so should I hit it with fast finish or similar to try and get the shine to blend? Or just polish it completely out ?

    You could try. Here is Meguiar’s stance on fast finish with matte paint.

    Fast finish left gloss marks all over it.

    Sounds like the previous owner did too much damage to it. Once a matte finish is polished there is no going back.

    You could try to have it wrapped in matte vinyl.

    can I polish it out the rest of the way? Or is that not how it works?
