    Re: Please help Identify staining/clear coat failure!

    When you polish the affected area

    1: Does it improve?

    2: Does it stay the same?

    3: Do you see any color coming off and onto your pad or towels?

    Does your car get hit by sprinklers? Could be hard water deposits when the water from the sprinklers dry?

    I'll have to check on these 3 things mike I think it may have gotten worse though. I kind of forgot about it when I polished a couple weeks ago.

    I just assumed it was going to go away and it didn't. Does it look like possible failure?

    This weekend could I just run a 4" white rupes pad over it with a non abrasive paint cleaner like pinnacle lotion to see if the pad turns black?

    Would that tell me or do I need to use an abrasive polish?

    I recieved the M16 thanks so much. I'm going to read the article you wrote on applying it and try it asap.

    Re: Please help Identify staining/clear coat failure!

    OK so I can't post pictures right now but I've been monitoring this and I think it's Polish that sat on the paint too long. I think it got under the rubber trim and leaked out when it rained.

    Assuming it's Polish what would be the best product to use to try to get rid of it?

    A wax remover would work I think or a panel prep wipe product. Just be carefull to not get the chemicals you use trapped under the trim. Use compressed air or a car blowdryer of some kind to blow the solution gets out or evaporate thoroughly. A longer bristle brush like the common detailing brush to aggitate where you can reach it. May need many applications and also flush it with water in between applications.
