    If it's clear coat failure nothing can be done except to repaint. To be sure, do a test spot.

    Hondas are notorious for having very thin clear coast. That's why you see so many with clear coat failure. Odds are, a repaint is in order.

    Thanks. That what I told the client. He was buying the car and if I could fix it he would get it. I told him the same thing you guys stated and also said "IF" I could fix it the price would go up expodentually! I think he's not buying the car!

    Paint failure can't be corrected, the vehicle needs to be repainted unfortunately. There's a line that you can't cross with paint, and in this case, the line was crossed. Too bad, luckily repainting a car isn't that expensive.

    I dont give up so easily. I use Meguiar's #7 Show Car Glaze to moisturize the paint and then polish with a DA and an AIO. I use the Show Car Glaze because it has old fashioned polishing oils that will help make the oxidized area look shiny, not dull and whitish. Maybe Alex can suggest a CG product like the Show Car Glaze to try?
