Exclamation Help!

First time poster but a long time reader.
I've searched all over the place on here trying to find a solution to this specific problem and either I'm not looking hard enough or it's never been brought up before.

I've owned my 06 GT coupe a little over a year and I'm starting to notice what I would consider paint oxidation, but maybe I'm wrong as to what it is. It's only currently happening directly below the black trim along the passenger side window and on the pillar above the door and between the roof on the passenger side. It is smooth to the touch and I've tried using a polishing compound that says it's designed to help remove light swirls and oxidation but no luck in removing it. Any suggestions?

Did you do a carfax to see if your car was ever in an accident?

Looks like you are experiencing a fail in the clearcoat.

Visit a body shop and ask them (or if you know a painter) what can be done about it.

Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....
