    Ralph they are known as fisheyes in the spray trade and are caused by silicone being still on the part to be painted
    When they started spraying basically they did not clean it properly, so you should take it back and get them to do it again

    As Bob said mate, if you have paid full price for it then I would take it back and get it sorted. The problem with wet sanding new paint yourself is you will never know how thick it is or how soft the paint is unless you have a £500 PTG
