    Where are these dots? In the first picture, it looks like etching from bird droppings.

    It's only at the hood of the car. The entire whole hood. Let me show a picture of the effect to light reflection.

    I can't really see what you're trying to capture. If it's the whole hood, maybe it's not the original paint?

    Re: Help? Dots on paint.

    I think I realised what it is..its a clearcoat failure. Ps, this car have bad painting job too. Certain part are 50++ mils whereas the roof are only 3-4 mil. It's a pity such a nice car which actually belong to a VIP (equivalent to that of "Sir" status) left for months or years under the sun. Full of waterspot too. Going to show other paint defect on this car.
