    Not sure how much help this is but if it was on TV back then it must have worked. My favorite part is at the 21 minute mark. If anything figure it was worth a laugh.

    Harbor freight has buffers pretty cheap. Then get some good rubbing compound. You can try a small spot by hand.

    Snake, Your car looks amazing. Never noticed it but im sure its there. I have heard of wet sanding clear, takes awhile to do then after thats done buffing it. I wish i could help you out with it but never really done it.A patient of mine has a old plymouth and he sanded the whole car, piece buy piece. seen the before and after........looked like it was re painted.

    basic overall clear gets hazy. Its cheaper so repair shops use it in bulk. Wet sand it and apply a good euro clear

    I do not know if there would be a problem repainting down the road but smooth top polish for smooth top ranges will take haze/minor scuff marks out of clear coat and leaves a very nice shine.

    I use this stuff, and it works great for haze and light oxidization.
    Works good by hand also.

    Your clear is your UV protection. The more you sand on it and the thinner it gets the greater the risk of it failing.

    By failing, I mean it will physically let go of the base coat and start pealing off.

    To me, it sounds like the clear is below it's minimum thickness in that area and failing. Clear should not haze over in one isolated area like that.

    Do you know what kind of paint and clear it is? I used PPG 2021 on mine in 2000. I never cut and buffed it. It still looks great. I have buffed cars and a haze has come back. [​IMG]

    Use polish, not compound on a foam pad on a buffer. The haze is from not finishing the buff job.

    I had my daily cut polished after it was painted to remove some drips and 5 years later the clear started peeling like onion skin , it is now bare base coat on all the upper surfaces , I would be very care polishing your clear coat , if it is hazy because it is thin and oxidized you will likely start losing it .

    They either put very little clear on it or the cut it way to much. Or it could have been cheap clear.

    Polish is just that, polish. Compound on the other hand has various grit or cut and is done with a cloth pad. After cutting/buffing you will inevitably have swirls which are removed with a foam finish pad and finishing polish. If you can blow through paint with a finish pad and polish you are doing something very wrong.

    Well I am confused,when the area in the quarter witch is about 5 inches and about 16 inches long was wet sanded to remove dust this was done about 4 years back,not now,he used a buffer with some kind of polish,I had bad feeling for the body man so there is no way he will not answer my call as to what he used.I polish my car once a year and that has work some what,just looking some kind of polish that is GREAT, what trailbeast sudgeated sound kind of harsh maybe not.

    Process is wet sand if needed, cut/compound buff, polish, wax.

    I would have the spot evaluated by a painter at a reputable shop. roccodart440 is right in the procedure but if the clear is below it's minimum thickness (which could be the cause of this problem), I would do nothing more than hand polish and wax.

    For what it's worth, used both of these, first the 105 Ultra-Cut and then the Fine-Cut to remove oxidation with a buffer I got from Griot's Garage after the Dodge had been parked outside for months at a garage. I started initially with the Fine-Cut but it wasn't abrasive enough and moved up the the 105, which really did the job, and then ended by using the Fine-Cut.
