Need some help

Hey guys and gals just got back from a wet track weekend and had some really nasty build up on the rear of my car, mainly on the trunk. Did my typical 2 bucket wash and noticed that there was still a haze on the paint. So the next thing i tried was to clay bar and still no change here are the pics. Thanks in advance!

well the track has only been open since April but has had alot of rain and run groups, so asphalt curing oils are probably not the culprit. I am running HFCs but have never run into stuff like this. It feels smooth to the touch. Just am hoping it did not eat the clear coat

A fine polish will most likely do the trick

Most likely the clear is fine, just needs a polish. Would you be okay with doing the polishing yourself, or do you need to find a local detailer?

did you tried the compound polish onto the rear back side of the trunk where you think that there is need to be polished........ same like was with my ride and i gave up a try with the compound polish and the ride simply just seems to be looking just perfect...
