dude u may want to use carnauba cleaner wax by mothers i had the same thing on my car n it worked


Used a McGuire's cleaner wax with a clay bar and quick detailer. Follow'd instruction but still foggy cloud finish. I think my roof is gone! I'm thinking about sanding/wetsand then repaint and clear coat a few times.


New Car ........ If you can't than New Paint !!


needs to be machine buffed with a mild compound to eliminate, then wax, good luck!


a clay bar isnt what i would use,i would usea mild compound and machine buff then wax,a clay bar will leave a film
