I just bought a second hand Toyota Pick-Up and the first thing I did was giving it a good clean and polish (naturally). A few days later I thought a nice paint job on the top half of the car would look great.
The question now is, having only used #66 as an LSP after buffing the car, will the silicon in the polish cause problems for the painter?

I am interested to hear your opinions.

A body shop or any type of automotive painter should have no problems removing the silicones from the paint. They have specialized body solvents that should remove all silicones/waxes from the surface before painting. This is usually part of the prep stage.

If you would have read his post, (or at least understood it), then you would not have posted what you did. ANY professional body shop understands that most of the cars that come into their shop have probably had some kind of car wax or paint protectant applied to them and they properly prepare the surface for fresh paint, in most cases this will mean sanding the paint down and chemically cleaning it before any body work or paint is applied.

Most people in this industry know this.
