White spots on black paint won't wash off

Not sure what this is but on both sides of the car there is quite a lot of white spots / spray thats really bugging me, Thought it would come off after a wash but won't budge.

Neighbour told me to try panel wipe, washing the car this morning so might try that.

what do you guys think it could be and what could I try to get it off?

Thanks

Looks a lot like road paint to me.

I'm assuming it's on the lower wings and front doors??

Your best bet it getting some paint thinners and just gently rubbing it off.

Otherwise you could use a paint shaving block, but it can be dangerous and expensive if you mess up.

Autoglym Tar remover from Halfords (Hence easily found on a Sunday Morning; and is pretty gentle in my experience) on a conspicuous spot might be a good start to see if it comes off easily......

Have you tried using a clay bar on it? As well as the usual iron outs, tar removers etc. How does it feel when running your finger tips over the area?

It's either overspray or road rash, the white could be your primer but it does look excessive for road rash

Thanks guys going to get some tar remover and try that next week, I tried the panel wipe and at first I thought it was working but nope still there.

Running my fingers over it it just feels smooth like the rest of the paintwork.

What paint thinner would you recommend? I'll try a tar remover first but I think it could be road paint.

Have you driven along any roads that have been resurfaced with the small loose chippings? I live in a rural area and a road I use regularly was resurfaced with these chippings and it left a light rash on the paintwork of my car similar to this. I ended up having to machine polish the area to sort it. I am not saying that is what it is but it looked like it.

That looks like an A45 with Arch Guards were the marks there before the guards were fitted?

It's 100% road paint.

You can clearly see raised lumps on the edge of the wing.

I don't really know much about thinners as we buy it in huge drums, I can't say I've ever paid attention to the brand or type... But I can have a look on Tuesday.
