Hi, how is everyone doing? Thank you for let me join, I am starting look into detailing my own car with meguiar products. I am newbie to it , I do try to watch all the video's online learn much as possible. My car had Siramik Glasscoat done by professional a year ago and always maintenence by him also. But I can see there is loads of swirl and scartch marks now, it getting too expensive to just getting maintenance by him like clean and wash the car inside out. As the swirl scartch marks still there , so I want to start learn to detailing myself. Before investing the MT320 DUAL ACTION POLISHER , will machine ultimate compound and polish can remove my old coating? Is there thread about it ? Thank you

Welcome to MOL. In short yes. Anything abrasive will remove a coating. I am not familiar with that exact coating but again most coatings are removed with an abrasive compound or polish.

I agree with The Guz. Also, keep in mind, with any correction/detailing process, your pad choice will be important too. I can't imagine a coating not coming off with a compound and a microfiber cutting pad, although admittedly, I have not done a correction on the specific coating you mentioned. My advice would be to start with a polishing pad and some Ultimate polish and see what that does, after working a small section. If it doesn't affect the swirls and scratches, gradually get more agressive with your product or your pad. Grab a six pack, and enjoy the process.
