New paint.

You might be able to fix some of the damage by using something like Scratch - X. Or a pro might have better results... Post some pics of it and we'll go from there...

Are you talking about those rain spots you get in the paint or ? A clay bar is good for removing alot of stuff.

There are also three step waxes that work real good.

I think rain spots are impossible to remove.

Nothing is "impossible to remove" . Some things are much harder to remove.

Pictures will go a long way toward helping diagnose your problems.

Is the paint single stage or base-coat/clear-coat. When you say "oxidized" it makes me think single stage, but that's just a guess.

Start with a good wash.

Follow with a clay bar.

You will need to evaluate the situation from there based upon a myriad of issues such as scratches, degree of paint oxidation/degradation, etc.

Use the least aggressive method to solve the problem. Don't start with a rotary buffer and a wool pad. Start with a polish (not a wax - there's a difference).

My favorite online resource is www.meguiarsonline.com

The forums there can walk you through many issues and lay out great advise on how to accomplish your goals regarding your paint.

Wish you well.

True. Correct me if im wrong, but water spots are etched down into the paint. So to get them out you would have to polish/buff/etc. down through the clear coat and then re-clear coat it. Right?

Back to the original question, if it is single stage paint, then a good three stage or cleaner wax, has always worked good for me to remove oxidation.

No... You won't need to re-clear it. Just clay, polish, and wax should do the trick.

Hmm. I'l have to try that. My 05 isn't bad at all, you can hardly see it, but my Dad's 03 Dmax has all kinds of spots from washing with hard water and not drying.

Do you have any recomendations for polish? I already have mequiars clay and tech wax. My clay is "mild," should I go with something more aggressive?

Thanks!

My favorite polish is Meguiars #7, only not in the gallon size...


Meg's also sells a 3 step kit which also works very well.







I'd start out with the clay bar, step 1, step 2, step 3, and top it with a coat of NXT.

All right, sounds good. Do you recommend going with the mild clay or medium or aggresive.

Thanks,
dan.

If you can find more than one choice, I'd say go with the medium... Most auto stores only carry one type of clay, if any at all.
