    Problems with the hood
    can anything be done about the chipping of paint? also, i have these really weird streaky looking things, i believe theyre from a car wash my mom went through about 6 months ago. heres a picture, it doesnt really show the streaky marks, but they`re there. it really shows the chipping of the paint. can anything be done about it?


    heres what i used
    mother clay
    DACP
    SSR1
    NXT
    the NXT actually did a really good job filling in some of those little scratches, but there`s still a lot more on the hood itself. i cant seem to really get the camera in hte rite angle to capture all of the scratches that i am seeing, and the camera doesnt seem to have that high of a quality or something. anyways, its like, a very certain angle in a sun, its sooooo revealing, you can see a couple dozen little scracthes, and a couple big ones here and there. i understand that theres not much you can do about the chipped paint, but theres these scratches/swirls or something...i think its under the clearcoat or something, becasuse it wont come off!!!. is there a type of light (or flashlight) i can use, that would further reveal all of these imperfections?

    heres a last pic, its the actual color of the car. u see how those chipped places seem to deminish the "perfect finish"?
