    Had a deep scratch repaired and resprayed and near drivers side read door on the quarter panel and this is inside the door recess between the chrome molding and the rubber weather seal.

    It cannot be removed with a damp cloth and it is not a powder and it is rough to slide finger over.

    Try removing with a clay bar and lube.

    what the hell am i looking at? take another pic at a wider angle... to me it looks like there was basecoat in the clear or they smashed the clear on so wet it took some color with it. whats the name of that color/paint code? those flakes look huge...


    word to the wise (advice from a spray painter thats been at it for 10 years), never ever book your car in to get fixed just before the holidays. it will almost always get rushed. the amount of work i smashed out in the month leading up to christmas would trigger an iraq war veterans ptsd flashbacks....

    The scratch repaired was to the left of the chrome molding, which was also replaced.

    Yeah i was wondering about that too. maybe they just got some overspray in there from their special Xmas masking.

    that first pic is definitely metallic color suspended in the clear. weather the clear ran and took some color with it or there was metallic in the clear when they painted the door jamb makes no difference, its there...

    i can tell just from looking at that pic the color is under the clear not on top...

    it just looks really dusty and overspray like to me. the chunks look bigger than the metallic flake itself in the first pic. but you're probably right and the clear just has some flake in it.

    The white dots to the right of the rubber seal (first pic)?

    Looks like compound splatter to me. Farecla/juice/autoglym junk that a lot of spray painters (in sydney at least) insist on using can set like concrete and the solvent based compounds often don't shift with water alone. And they get everywhere! Try using a little polish or paint cleaner (not wax, just to be clear) on a microfibre and see if it will budge. Might also be able to pick it with a fingernail, in which case, go ahead with the polish and it should come off easy enough.

    Then shine a torch on the section they polished and see how much they marred it up with 8 inch twisted wool (another massive sydney trait)

    i think i just worked it out, its solvent pop in a run that was rubbed and buffed. what your seeing is compound thats in the air holes. you can almost see the bottom of the run where its turned into a drip, near the last white dot at the bottom. the air bubbles come when the car is baked in an oven before the clear has flashed off.

    You might be right there. I've seen quite a lot of solvent pop here with repairs in the last 6 months.
