    This could be an indication of a very bad paint job...
    of which there is no correction other than a re-paint.
    I have owned this car since 2007 and has never been repainted. The vehicle has factory paint except for the hood and passenger’s side fender which the original owner had repainted. Car has always been meticulously taken care of. Paint had received a full Meguiars 5 step finish and was waxed with M21 not long ago and the short span of durability of the wax for a garage kept car with no road use is my real surprise.

    The problem was trying to apply M21 to a surface that was already sealed with Ultimate Liquid Wax.

    Re polish the area again with something like M205, or Ultimate Polish, and use either the M21 2.0, or Ultimate Liquid Wax by itself.
