Dan,

What you say is no doubt true, but the bigger takeaway is if you are washing factory-painted cars with weathering washes, put a "barrier" coat on FIRST that is a non-laquer product.  In other words, use a product like Testors Model Master acryl semi gloss, or a vallejo acrylic.  The sequence here is critical - yes you have to apply at least 2 clear coats to the model.  You won't regret it!

Don't wash away the beautiful stenciling (that is, unless you want to as a weathering effect!).

Best wishes,
