Diamondbrite Rainscreen Went Wrong

Tried treating my windscreen with Diamondbrite Rainscreen yesterday but it didnt go too well. I followed the instructions on the bottle but it was horrendously hard to buff off, it toook me 15mins to buff the windscreen alone.

The process went:
  1. Clean glass with AG Fastglass
  2. Apply Rainscreen with foam applicator
  3. Re apply in opposite dirrection to insure even coverage
  4. Buff off
Once I had got it buffed off it looked OK, but later that night when there was a dew over the windscreen I could see all the swipes where I had applied it. When I used the wipers it went into a streaky mess.

Has anyone got any tips on how to get better results? Also, how would I remove It? Would Tardis work?

To remove I would polish with a glass polish.
When you reapply, after buffing spray a little bit of your fast glass on a microfiber cloth and buff again.

Try giving it a good wipedown with neat IPA it could well solve the problem of the residue without actually removing the sealant itself
