    rough spots..

    i send my car for the 2 step polish and wax 2 weeks ago. just yesterday while i was slowly inspecting while waxing my car, i noticed that are 4cm by 4cm patches of rough area (which doesnt shine as well). Has that been missed out during polishing? I tried to put the wax on that area but it doesnt seem to shine nor smooth. how can i remove this rough patches and what product should i use?

    This is just a wild guess, but it may be clear coat failure.........If you have clear coat paint that is.

    Some pictures might be helpful though.

    Janicekoh, was the rough patch on the car before you send for polishing? Rusty Bumper could be right about the clearcoat failure. Some detailing centers have poor skill on handling rotary buffer, they could have burnt ur clearcoat.

    Hey,

    It sounds like the clear coat has been compromised in thoses areas. When the clear is gone, the base coat is flat looking. Like Zey mentioned, were the patches there before you had it polished?

    To summarize, it could be as follow:

    1) rough spots appeared before detailing - Clearcoat failure. If it's paint oxidation, the detailer could have removed it after polishing.

    2) rough spots appeared after detailing - Buffer burn.

    it appeared after i have sent it for car detailing...do u think they might have missed that spot during the polish process? or could it be they burn it?
