Cloudy mark after compounding
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi All

I have a near new/never painted Honda HRV.

There were some marks on the drivers front door. After using a mothers compounding product on my Meguiars G220 I have a bad 'cloudy' mark on the door.

Have I ruined the clear coat?? - picture attached

Needs a less aggressive polish to bring the shine back

Thanks for the reply.

Gave it a few passes with a finishing compound but unfortunatly made it worse. Now a solid grey area.

Weirdly I cannot feel any difference between the affected and non affected areas.

I had heard Honda paint was thin but this seems ridiculous.

Looks like a door repaint needed now.

Looks like it's gone through the clear coat.

That last picture definitely looks like you're through the topcoat and looks like you'll need it painted possibly a smart repar might be able to fix without spraying the full door.

Thanks guys.

Off to the painters tomorrow it is.

The mark I was trying to originally remove looked like something maybe a chemical or brake fluid had run down the paint - maybe this had weakened the clear causing it to breakdown unusually fast when polished.

Possibly could have been and always difficult to comment without having seen it. Advice always is to start with the least aggressive pad and polish combo and work up however I'm sure you'll not do the same again anyway.

Good luck and hopefully the paint shop won't be too sore on the wallet tomorrow.

Yes agree!! Shouldn't be too costly to fix

Unfortunately you have burnt through.

That being said there might have been a smart repair here. I would be surprised at you going through the paint with a DA. What were you using?
