    ok, two pics, both of my hood. the area in question is inside the box that i so eloquently drew. you'll faintly be able to see these rings that when seen in person are dull compared to the rest of the paint and smooth to the touch. lemme know.

    basically, i want to know for sure before i go about fixing it the wrong way.

    also, what causes this?

    If the clearcoat is thinning in those spots, nothing will work but if the clear is just dulling a bit a good polish should work.

    how would you describe thinning as opposed to just dulling?

    If you see tiny cracks in the paint, the clear is going. Also, it doesn't respond well to polishing-as in no real improvement.

    ok good, so according to that, it sounds like dulling.

    so just working it over a few times with a decent polish should do the trick?

    i assume, after washing and claying the area?
