    White spots on paint

    Looking for some guidance, I was detailing my SUV yesterday when I noticed a small cluster of white dots on a section of the roof. I always keep a coat of wax on my ride and wash it once a week. When I run my finger over it, it feels like bumps as if there is contanmenents in the paint. My thoughts were using the clay bar would correct but I figured I would ask some experts. I have a picture I can post, but I'm on my cell phone and don't see a place to post pictures on the thread. Appreciate any advice, thanks!

    Hello,

    A picture is really going to help us identify what is going on with the paint. It could be a variety of defects based on your description. Yes, uploading a picture can be easier from a regular computer. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

    I tried to post a pic. It said it would need approved from a moderator.

    The pic is in your post. Since you can feel the spots, whatever they are, they're on top of the wax/paint. It's odd they're clustered together like that & a uniform size. Doesn't look like sap droppings from a tree even though it's spring. I'd try the clay as a first step.

    Re: White spots on paint

    Sorry I know this post is over a year old, but wanted to bring it back to see if anyone had any ideas? I got my vehicle detailed in the spring and those white dots are also on other areas of my vehicle. they were not able to be removed with buffing so I am wondering if this is a defect in the paint? my detailer said he has seen this on other dodge vehicles and they are know to have issues with the paint.

    More pictures would help really. More close up pictures as well.
