So when I bought my 2000 catera about two months back, I noticed that there are a few clearcoat oxidation spots... These spots range from mild to moderate in severity, and will provide pictures if needed...
But what I'm getting at, is I'm wondering if Turbo or any of the other detail aficianodos out there could help me out with some steps to getting them cleaned up...

Re: Clearcoat Oxidation spots
I would clay the car first, if that does not take the oxidation off then you will need an abrasive product like 3M Scratch & Swirl Remover, it's best when used with a buffer, but can be done by hand too.
I agree with HCVONE, claying is more for contaminants "ON" the finish, where as Oxidation is "IN" the finish. I wouuld suggest my Ultimate cleaner/polish, that will do the best working by hand, (or you could use a buffer) depending on how bad it is. like if its through the clear coat. you will have limited success because no product can restore the clear. Good Luck! Gary
