Wrong. Clear coat is cured before leaving the factory. Watch the videos from Audis, Porsche, and Chevys factories. They are dipped in a formula primer which attracts the paint. Robotically painted and cleared, then baked dry.

The problem with Subaru clear is that it is soft. Try detailing a Mercedes and then a Subaru, you will notice a difference.
