paint problems

well about late november we had a lot of snow i slid into a ditch. when we pulled it out it scratched the truck up pretty bad on some trees. got it fixed now a few days ago drove though some mud. no big deal i thought need to see how the cows were doing after all the rain. got busy didnt wash it till a few days after. now any where theres new paint and clear coat i have these little water spot stains on my fresh paint. any ideas why? all the factory stuffs ok no spots. thanks

It is because your new paint isn't fully cured. You can't leave mud and water on a freshly paint rig. Take it back to the shop that painted it and they can buff it to get marks out.

Yup. Ya need a buff. The mud may have some type of acidic compound to it that was eating at the clearcoat. Happened to my old car.

Take it to a buffer and be prepared to hand over some coin. Take this as a good opportunity to get the entire truck wetsanded/buffed and it will look like sex and candy.

if it was painted a few months ago the clear should be fully cured. but it does sound like there was something acidic in the mud there. take it back to where you had it painted. they SHOULD for FREE buff those spots out. i know our shop would at least.

I completely understand about the black truck thing. It's impossible to keep it looking good.
