clearcoat repair

o k i was pressure washing the cattle trailer, finished it, truck needed cleaning so i proceed to p. wash the truck, had some road tar on the truck (one way out road and they were scarifying it), anyway the pressure washer does a good job of removing tar, but on the added on running boards (color matching) i [email protected]#$ed up the clearcoat in a few places, so is there any self fix remedies or am i at the mercy of a body shop? how about the little white specks (rock chips)?

08 dodge 3500 dually, quad cab, inferno red,6.7, 4x4, 6sp auto, rhino lined bed, b&w gooseneck turnover ball,full length fiberglass running boards (color matching),reese hitch.

I don't think you could really do much about it tbh. either leave it, or have them repainted. Personally, I'd run chrome tubular steps and get rid of the painted ones just for that very reason. JMO

if only the clear coat came off and the color stayed on . Most likely the clear was getting ready to de laminate (peel off ) on its own . you would most likely been having to have them re painted anyway so i would say you didnt really [email protected]#$ Up.

there are several reasons that can cause the clear to peel off on its own. you just helped it out
