I detailed a car this weekend with a very weird problem. I cant seem to figure it out, so im looking to Scott (or anyone else) for a little help. Ok, this car is a 98 Nissan Maxima, metalic blue, with a cloudy clear coat on the sn beaten panels of the car. I.e. the hood, roof, and trunk deck. Its weird becuase the cloudyness looks like oxyidization, but the clearcoat is perfectly intact, and glass smooth. I tried DACP, SFP, 3MPI, and SEPC. And clayed before applying any of the polishes. The weird thing, is that none of them removed the cloudyness. But heres the really weird part. After each application of product, the cloudyness went away, or at least became less cloudy. But 5-10 minutes after applying the product, the cloudyness came back. I can only assume becuase the oils had evaperated. So, im a bit stumped here. The clearcoat looks fine, line glass, no imperfections, no cracking pealing, or anything of the sort. HArd clay doesnt remove it. And yet when i apply polish, it disapears, only to reapear once the oils evaperate. The other weird thing, is that when i applied wax (hoping that maybe it would help to seal the polish in...it streaked. S100 left fingers ont eh paint. So i repolished it with SEPC, and applied NXT. NXT did the same thing. Not as noticable, but just as annoying as the S100. And this only happened on the cloudy portions of the paint. Im just curious as to what it might be, and how to cure it...that doesnt involve a spray gun.
