Thanks for the comments on removal of the etching. I was just wondering if this was an issue with subaru paint. It sounds like it is just weak factory paint. It's just that I have an 11 year old civic that has gotten crapped on all the time and doesn't have clearcoat etching.
I use mothers ultimate wax system, clay, cleaner, glaze/seal, and carnauba wax. Maybe I should have gotten ziebart's paint coating system instead.
