    Hi

    Not a major detailing person but like to keep car clean.

    Gave car a quick polish with Autoglym Polish and then Sealant this weekend and I noticed under door mirrors and in a couple of other places, that the paint texture isn't smooth - it feels a bit rough like a very very fine wet and dry paper.

    Think it needs clay barring, is it just ageing or has it been damaged by something like de-icer ?

    Any ideas ? Ta.

    General contamination over time, being near a railway, trees, on an industrial estate with bodyshops in the vacinity can all add up to rough paint, clay it and see what happens....
