    It says "but if applied incorrectly can be machine polished from your vehicles paintwork." If applied correctly a light polish will not remove a freshly applied CSL. You would need something more aggressive. Now if we are in the 3-5 year mark, pending how regularly the car is driven and its care conditions a light polish could remove it.

    They said the 24 hour time "limit" between CSL and EXO is not because of curing issues, it is from a contamination perspective. They said as long as you panel wipe after CSL or EXO, you can follow up with the next layer at any time. They said that they have people all the time do a panel at a time so the next coat can be 1-2 weeks later. She just said to make sure to panel wipe to remove any contamination and dust. She said this is more of a concern if you are driving the car, the car sits outside, etc.

    She said do not wash for 7 days and 14 if you can avoid it. Good to know.

    Thanks everyone!
    Good stuff! Saving lol.

    My guess is that it the wording is not very clear, but it will remove the coating whether applied correctly or incorrectly. The incorrect application probably refers to high spots. Either way, even if a light polish will not remove it 100%, I would bet it would greatly greatly diminish performance over time.

    Agree. They can claim whatever they want but a solid quality polish does remove it.

    Yeah I don’t think prosumer Coatings are as hard to remove as people think. I removed CqUk3 when first coated (week later maybe?) by hand with Essence and a green polishing pad.

    Wasn’t happy it removed so easily but found it didn’t matter. Performed great for almost 2 years

    You mean the video I watched of the guy removing high spots of CQUK3 by wet sanding wasn’t necessary? The horror!

    Jk, knew the guy was overdoing it.
