Wow that takes some nerves of steel, but hopefully all will work out and it’ll be better than new

A lesson learnt. Why on earth did you leave it an hour anyway.

These cheap coatings are nothing but s**t anyway

It would seem that they are pretty resilient though

That did make me laugh!

Fair play to the original poster. I'm afraid to attack my car with aggressive polishers, so a wet sand is pretty brave. Who knows how much clearcoat is left

However a huge amount of learning and experience will be gained from all of this. Sometimes you have to go in balls deep to really gain the most.

Jokes on a side but it was thought as hell. I have now polished the whole car there are just some parts were I missed the sanding as I did not see it for obvious reason as car was covered in all the sanded moisture. All the remaining imperfections were I have missed sanding down the coate I will cover these next weekend, as will clean the car again and apply the old loved and trusted wax.
Later on today I will post another photo of the finished vehicle that I have on my phone as I am not home now.

Balls of steel, Mariusz.

Hi.

Again, as promised here is a photo of what the car looks finally acceptable at least, So to recap, what happened to it.

Being stupid and ignoring the leaflet that was attached to this ceramic coating last sunny weekend I attempted to apply the coating. Having no previous idea how to apply it but for some reason I had in my head that it has to be left for quite a wile before trying to wipe it I covered the whole car in the coating, left it for an hour in sun before I tried to buff it off, and on my return to buff it off coating nearly already harden to an extent that it was no longer possible to buff it off.

Tried to polish the car with heavy compound and heavy cut pads to no help at all, it did not remove even 5/10% of the coating and the paint work looked like it was applied with brush, seriously brush and was visible from standing even like 5 meters away that something is not right and was a bit matt no shine to the body at all.

My next move was to wet sand and polish so it happened, the whole car got wet sanded and then polished. At this stage there are still few marks or strikes of the coating where I have missed to sand it down as there was ton of sand dust or how you call it, milky water, Car has now received a full wet sanding and polish, next weekend I will tackle these just few spots were coating marks are still left and polish these areas again. And at the end when body is perfect condition I will give a car a full wax (and I will stay with waxing forever now)

Moral of the story, coating is not for idiots.
