Just had my RV-8 painted after six years of polishing with Nuvite. Had no problems prepping for paint. No silicone, so it comes right off with standard pre paint preparations.
If it's going to be a couple of years before you paint, you might as well make it look nice in the meantime.
Go to the Nuvite website for instructions and recommendations for the buffers/polishers to use.
