Hate it when that happens !!! You really had a nice finish on those parts too.
Well now you get to have the enjoyment of repainting.
Don't feel too bad because your not alone here, we've all had something like this happen to us at one time or another.

Sorry. It's a real stinker when water or bugs get in the paint!

My last frustration was Orange Peel. Other than the little water dots, the finish is fantastic! :thumbs:

I don't suppose that will buff out, will it! What are you running for rear tires? They look good. I'm thinking of AG's for my 314.

Fantastic finish you laid down! I could comb my hair in it...if I had any LOL! You may be lucky enough that it will buff out. Worse case, you can wet sand and throw on a fresh coat in a few days. How many coats are on there?

got i repainted this afternoon and it looks better than it did yesterday before the water . but let me tell ya, i have never had to do that much wet sanding on one thing in my life . the paint was still not cured and you could still leave finger nail marks in it so wet sanding was my only option . well it looks better than before and as slick as glass .
