Paint haze repair

So I'm storing a car outside and I've noticed that the paint has hazed in areas where water runs off. I can't wipe it off and was wondering how do I fix this? Will it come out with polishing? I have 2 coats of Collinite 476 on it.

Any help would be appreciated!

Yup it is. I had no choice but to store it outside. It has the same hazing underneath the bumper along the bottom. No water runs off there but I presume its from water sitting on the flat parts.

My guess is that you are correct. Its single stage paint?

Hey Dan. How old is the paint in that area? Older paints can be susceptible to that kind off damage. Can you send a pic or pop by with the car? We can try a few things and see what works for you.

The paint is about 4 months old. There car is in storage inside finally so I don't have any pics... or insurance to drive it anywhere. I was hoping there was something I could do myself to fix this??

I would think just a light polish would do it. Do you have anything on hand?

The only thing I have is some Autoglym polish. I will give that a try. Thanks Ken.
