    Default urgent

    This morning decided to clean my son's corsa, any way long story short gave my vec a hose down just to take dust off at same time as had spent 4 hours wash,snowfoam wash,polish and seal tuesdsay, after finishing my son's car i found my vec was covered in white blotches, snowfoam never reach my car. Ever panel had white crystal like formations on them.
    The first pic is of blotches , the 2nd is after spending 2.5 hrs with near neat fairy liquid, megs paint cleaner and buckets off very hot water, we are still left with this nots and crosses effect(only when wet).Has anyone see this before, treatment for or any solution how to resolve??

    Have you got a machine polisher? If I am honest, it looks like water marks (only by looking at the pictures) If you have a polisher, it may be worth trying it out with a polishing pad and a finishing polish.

    Could try something like Megs machine polish (doesn't have to be applied by machine or Megs Ulitimate, AG SRP is good, but I believe more likely to cover faults than remove.
    Have you tried claying a small patch?

    Hi guys, try not to wash in direct sunlight, up here we haven't had much lately, Ginge i have a few more pics , will post when i get home, May have answer not sure, 5 weeks ago i got a mobile valet to clean the vec while i was of with back injury, it was a waterless wash, while he was doing it start to rain , ask this ok ,yea no probs, continued to rain for 2 days before i saw end results, the roof and the bonnet had band about 4" wide of white blotches , phone and ask him to come back yep na bother never been seen, just wondering if this could of caused this problem, not getting anyone in to trouble just want opinons,the marks you see in the 2nd pic showed up on the Tuesday as i cleaned the car myself, by the time i had finished all marks had disappeared, right thats that sorted,wrong , could this stuff and AG react against each other, At the moment the car looks like its been polished and waxed , great reflections even after near neat fairy liquid!!!!! Not try clay bar as could not find it, willing to try all except machine polisher as never used one, thanks again Mac.
