Tree sap damage

I made the awful mistake of leaving a car off the road for a long period of time without washing.

Tree sap was all over it but I did not think it would do any harm.

WRONG, I washed, clayed and machine polished the car.

Looked perfect on the day so I waxed it with AG hd.

Couple of days later I had a good look at the paint and there are little marks or etches all over the car.

At first I thought I must have done it with the machine but it was only a soft pad and medium polish that finishes as fine polish.

Then I remembered the car sitting there covered in tree sap and bingo, I realised the strange markings were the remains of damage caused by the sap.

The machine must have polished out most of the etching but the deepest of it was left.

Well that is my theory anyway. I will have to take a photo but its raining non stop.

Any thoughts ?

Are you sure its not damage from water spots as you said it has been parked outside and not washed for a long period of time.
