    Hey guys,

    A friend at work had a lot of tree sap on her car. She got rid of it with nail polish remover (i know...). Now she has a few spots on her hood (but nowhere else) that have a bit of discoloration. When you look at the paint in those spots, the light refracts almost like an oil/fuel puddle in a parking lot.

    Was this caused by the nail polish remover? Anyone seen this before? What do you recommend to fix it? I don't think any of the stuff I have, even with my PC, would fix this. I helped her clay and wax the car (NXT) on the weekend. That got rid of the dull spots.

    Without seeing it in person it is really hard to say. You can try polishing it and see, can't really think of anything else to try.

    Thanks Scott. I tried to take pics, but they didn't come out (only had her crappy cellphone cam with us).

    I'll give it a try with the SFP, or the S100 SEPC.. and if that doesn't work, she's got enought swirls for me to use the speed glaze or the DACP on her hood.
