    If the rubstrip was not taken off during the respray then I would not recommend de rubstripping.

    Hours. Just keep going at it, it is difficult as the glue is really stubborn. Try a Toffee Wheel.

    If it feels rough like feel the patch indenting in then you won't be able to help it. Otherwise you could try and polish it out?

    Nothing serious, a bit of polish should sort it out .

    I am going to de-rub strip this week but want some info. I pulled the edges of each rub strip to check if there was a laquer edge where it may have been resprayed and i found nothing, all was smooth!. But, i found a dirty outline (Like a greasy scum line) around the rub strip, just below where a sponge can reach during washing, which has obviously built up over the years as dirt has built up. I tried to remove the dirty greasy marks with my finger, but found they wouldn't all come off. Would polish or T-cut shift these dirty marks or will i be left with a dirty outline? Also, how bad would the condensation marks be on my car?? It is star silver 3. And would the condensation marks definitely disappear?
