the only time i got those type of spots was when i was dumb enough to cover my car with a piece of plastic and the only way to get them out was by wet sanding and buffing it,which of course i didnt do myself.

If the wax didn't take it off, it's probably acid rain spots. WET SAND AND BUFFING SHOULD GET RID OF IT. Acid rain eats into the clearcoat a bit thats why you see the spots.

If I were you...I'd try "polishing compound" first and then rubbing compound secondly before having any wet sanding done.Color sanding requires years of experience and can be costly.....especially if they don't do it right!!Alot of body shops don't even do color sanding after a paint job and most color sanders won't touch the car unless they know exactly how many migs of paint and clear are on the car and how old the paint job is!!!

TRUST ME ON THIS ONE........I LEARNED THE HARD WAY AND IT COST ME A WHOLE NEW PAINT JOB AND THEN SOME !!!!!!!!!!

50/50 mix of vinegar and water ... spray it on in a spary bottle of course let it sit and react with the minerals (basically to let them dissolve and lift and then wipe it off with a clean dry rag .... then if you must wax afterwards

Keeping up with wax will help prevent that.


Try a cleaner type wax before wet sand and buff...

like stated before, try chemical agents before you have it cut and buffed out.

i use 3m rubbing compund, or swirl remover, then polish, use something that isnt very abrasive or you will swirl your clear.
or do it by hand in straight lines ...so small scratchesfrom thecompound only show in one direction
