    cliffs @ bottom of post

    I recently moved my vette out of my garage (needed garage space for another project) for about a month. So before I moved her, I buffed the entire car with 3m rubbing compound, then went over it with 3m machine glaze for dark colours.. with a final coat of meguiars NXT polish.

    I then moved the car into my backyard and covered it up with my wolf outdoor cover figuring I'd be somewhat safe from scratches and what not.

    Here's what I found when I uncovered the car...

    The blurry specs in the last picture are VERY noticeable in person and I'm almost ashamed to post these. Those specs are ALL over the top sides of the car and I dont know wtf they are. They dont appear to be bubbles, yet I dont think they're pinholes because I've got some elsewhere on the car that happened right when I sprayed the car (almost 5 years ago).

    My question is, why would it do this now? I've used this cover before with no problems at all, hell.. it held up perfectly a few winters ago when my car was buried under 3 feet of snow


    cliffs: Put car cover on a perfectly clean/well protected paint job only to uncover it a month later to see it filthy and covered in specs

    See what you can get out of it, brother.

    If it's still not to your liking, repaint it black. :hs:

    arent you suppose to polish then glaze?

    anyways.. did you paint your car within the year? paint takes a while to dry and dont recommend car covers over it for the first year. it airs out the paint thinner/reducer and everything else over like 5-8 months.. at least thats what my painter told me.
