    Paint question

    I noticed after winter that my car has what looks to be "scratches" on it, but not like deep scratches (if i run my fingers above it, i dont feel anything....like it looks more of like a stain). Im thinking it was caused by the thing that you use to wipe off snow. It looks like it would come off with a car wash, but t doesnt. I could try to take some pics but i dont know if it would show clearly.

    I have a lot on my hood and some on the sides. Any ideas? Should i try waxing the car? ...or should i buff it?

    Thanks

    If you gave it a really good scrubbing and it didnt come out.. Its small scratches in the clear coat. You can use rubbing compound on it. Don't do it by hand you will get swirls in it. Or you could just take it to a body shop or a detail shop.
    Hey...Stop looking down here you pervert.

    yeaaaa that's what it looks like. Its only on the top clear coat.

    Where can i buy rubbing compound and what is the proper method to do it? I really dont want to take it to a shop because they usually keep the car overnight.

    Thanks alot for the info.

    You should be able to get it just about anywhere. Use a buffer if you have one. Start with a polishing compound and then finish with a glaze.
