Claying and fallout remover with an ipa wiped down should remove it mate

Polishing will remove it too. Super Resin Polish is a great way of preparing the paint for UHD and there won't be any need for a wipe down before applying it then.

As above, the simplest option is Super Resin Polish the car, then apply fresh UHD. That is what I would do. It is questionable whether you would notice any difference at all if you Intensive Tar Removered the whole car first. It may be a case of emperors new clothes and not actually any measurable difference.

If you do want to remove everything before starting ITR will certainly do it.

Using ITR to strip a surface is great if you are doing side by side testing or some other analysis that requires a completely equal start point.

Why go to the trouble of removing it. IF I am reapplying UHD Wax I simply go over the top of the last layer (after cleaning the car etc).

Once I year I will polish, etc and start again
