So I have Simoniz GlassCoat on my car, which the dealership applied, and I am wondering what the best way of striping off this coating would be if possible. Car has 800 miles on it so far and usually wears some LSP layered over the GlassCoat, so its barely worn/weathered.
I have some OptiCoat coming later this week, if anyone has experience with the GlassCoat treatment I would value any advice. Advice on how to remove the Glasscoat or if I can just treat it like any other sealant and strip accordingly. I am guessing that I will need some type of DA and polishes/cutting compounds. Has anyone had success topping GlassCoat with other permanent/semi-permenant nano coatings or OptiCoat?
BTW, the dealership applied this in 30 minutes while I waited for the paperwork and stuff to run through their systems. 30 minutes total for both the GlassCoating and the interior teflon textile protection. They may have used heat guns but I doubt it, and I don't know the properties of Glasscoat and whether it cures super fast. Point is I didn't even know about the stuff until I got the car (first new car) and maybe should have done some research on it before getting it applied. The stuff is not scratch resistant to the point of being worth even 10% of its price, and is hydrophilic not hydrophobic (i prefer the beading).
I have also read it doesn't last long and is more like a very good sealant's life cycle. Anyway, have a screwed myself out of being able to apply OptiCoat since I don't own any polishing tools?
