I hear that Vegatable Oil works, the good thing is that it wont hurt your paint!!:brow: Or you can wet sand it with like 2000 or finer sandpaper then wax it that will for sure fix it and will be nice!!!:burnout:

I would take some compound to it, or wet sand some extremely fine grit sandpaper. I'm talking #650 or finer.

Once it's all smoothed out you can polish/wax it, and this will give you a more uniform appearance. However, the wax wont hold up for very long. You'll have to wax often (every couple months) to keep it looking good.

Clear coats are a great development in paint technology. You might consider having a new coat applied if the base (color) coat is still in good condition.

good luck, John

Careful with that. You'll go down to metal reeeeal quick. Best to wet-sand the offending areas and get clear sprayed over it again.
