    did you give it to a 'detailer'???

    what was he meant to have done? is it rough?

    at best it looks like some kind of marring - maybe from claying...

    or polish not worked long enough or refined enough, so messed the paint...

    could also be wet sanded, and not refined??

    none of which are that hard to fix.... but, black car and dark pics, I can't really make it out.

    if it's damage to the clear coat, then paint is the only solution I'm afraid... :(

    Bring it over buddy and I shall get to work on it. Hate seeing people get ripped off like that.........IF I can I will correct said problems and do thewhole car and give it a winter protection and seal it all up for you. How does that sound? Let me know. If you want it done before Xmas you'll have to get a shufty on as Monday and Tuesday only. If no rush then bring it to me after New Year but look at losing it for 2 days minimum. Mark
