    Is this clear coat failure, coating failure or something else?

    Last year I did a full paint correction on my neglected Mustang GT. I washed with Megs Gold Class, clay mitt, rewashed, a light rotary 1500 RPM with Ultimate Compound and finished with a DA and Ultimate Polish. I then used an IPA wipe down and applied Mckee's Ceramic coating.

    About 3 months ago I noticed this but chalked it up to not washing and a combination of (pollen, dirt, sap etc.) but tried to wash it today and it would not come off. I tried scrubbing it with my microfiber towel, used Goo Gone and my clay mitt but nothing.
    In some areas, it looks a little bubbly when I press on it. This is my daily driver and it is parked in the hot sun, cold weather.

    This is a 1-2 year coating but that is optimal conditions. Do you think this is the coating expiring and just run a DA or Rotary on it? I don't want to make it worse if it is the clear.

    Since it's bubbly I think it's probably the coating. You could take it to a good detailing shop to get their opinion.
