Not all the time, maybe a wetsand and polish might be all you need but I have been able to fix problems like this just by X-koting the car.

After a car has had X-kote applied is there a certain curing time? Or can you be applying other compounds on afterwards? Or if something has been applied before hand wil it affect X-kote?

I recomend to clients that the car not be washed for 2 weeks after we x-kote it. In 12 hours the coating is 75% cure, within 2 weeks it is 90% cure, and 3 months it's 100%. We put a coating of our specially formulated X-Protect sealant over top of every job we do before it leaves the shop. This product gives the X-Kote a protective barrier while it is curing. The product is completely silicone free which is a good thing. If people choose not to go with our aftercare product line we just recomend you find some products that are silicone free.

Anything that has been applied before the car is brought to us gets stripped off in our prepping process. Touch up paint in stone chips is also removed then put back in after.

No the sealant is designed to protect for up to 2 months. Rain is not a huge issue after 24 hours of cure. Anything before that time I have seen issues with water spotting. Lesson learned from me X-Koting cars on rainy days and sticking them outside after 4 hours. I did that 2 times last year and quickly figured out the problem.

Where is the car coming from? If it is a RHD Jap Import civic, I'll save you the trip down to the shop. I don't do the imported cars. There is something wrong with the paint process they use over there that X-Kote does n ot like. It doesn't react well. I had to turn away 3 guys last summer with those cars.
