Whats this?

hi, does anyone know what this is on my car? i put some touch up on my car as a temporary fix. After 24 hours i went over the area with a black hexlogic pad and sonax perfect finish. Inside the black line the paint looks a darker blue, and outside it looks duller.


has the paint been damaged or is the paint duller in areas due to not being polished?
Thanks

I'd guess the same as ultra from the photos. Looks almost burnt at the bottom. Also towards the top of your second photo it looks like a large patch of rust under the paint? If it is I wouldn't machine over that as it's likely to just lift the paint straight off

Yeah looks like the clear has gone.i had a similar issue what happens is the pad pulls the soft touch up paint out and onto the pad which then cuts through your clear coat like having grit on your pad. Respray for bonnet £200.

I wouldn't say you've gone through the clear coat especially when your using a black pad and PF, looks like you've not let the touch up paint cure long enough and removed some of it and it's caused a chemical reaction of some sort.

I think it's removed some which has acted like grit on the pad and been used to cut the clear, I did the same once. Touch up needs a good week to full cure. Get it covered with a stripe or sticker ifbrepaint ids notoption
