    Default Paint on new cars?

    My car has so many holograms all over the paint and its not from me either as im a well seasoned detailer and know what im doing,

    Within my job i get to see/play with a lot of new cars, 06,56,07,57 reg and they all seem to have them.

    Is it becuase the paint in water based and not solvet like older paint?

    HELP ME its driving me nuts



    no amount of polishing/compounding will remove them.

    i have Machine polished the whole car several times with a PC and it is 100% swirl/mark free

    Any ideas people????

    That looks like swirls to me matey. You've probably over polished it and marred the paint. At the risk of sounding cheeky, get a pro detailer to sort for you.

    Post it up on Detailing World and see what answers you get. I'm betting they'll say similar to me.

    (I don't mean to sound cheeky dude, sorry)
