The coating made a very noticeable difference, that pant looks wet and super glossy and feels silky, I barely had to use soap when I washed my car yesterday from driving in the rain, most remaining dirt slid off.

not sure what you mean? this is a sealant, it protects the paint and makes the surface easier to maintain.
If I coated the FF with this, and later decided to repaint, how hard would it be to strip back off without harsh chemicals?

all you use is diluted isopropyl alcohol. spray it and buff it off. not hard at all. you have to actually give the car an alcohol bath before you apply the product, otherwise contaminates will prevent the oil-based sealant from bonding with the paint.

lmk if you're interested in doing the coating. the tuxedo black will look grayish in the sun due to all the flake when done right.

Quick question. I looked through this entire thread to today to get caught back up. For those of you with the stripes on the front quarter panels, did you use plastidip for those?
Thanks
