Default Aspen White Rear Spoiler Oxidation STI

The paint on my rear spoiler looks very cloudy. The top still feels smooth but it looks like its only a matter of time before the issue surfaces. The car has been garaged 90 percent of its life and has always had some type of wax on it. Is this a known issue or am I the anomaly here with a low quality paint coat?

Any solution outside of repainting it?

I have similar issues with my hood scoop on my 07 sti. I'm going to try a series of compounds. Good luck with the spoiler.

Yes, but much more amplified.

The above was corrected with only a Meguiars M205 compound with a white finishing polish foam pad. So try the least aggressive method first, and work your way up from there. Try a finishing polish to see if it will work, work several passes. Move onto the next aggressive level, work a few passes. Evaluate and see if it is corrected or requires more.

On the new hatch models this shows up on the rear spoiler off the hatch and on the plastic base of the hood scoop. Its in the grooves on the far edges and across the section where it meets the car.

I started at M205 went down to M105 and some of it still wont go away. I used a orange pad and i tried some by hand...not very happy about it. I'll give it 30days to settle and try again. I was wondering if i needed to looking into fiberglass polish of some sort. Because i was able to get the scoop to clear up with M105 but the rear spoiler still has it.

I have a white and a yellow pad so i may tinker with that a little. I will also break out the step stool and see if i can get a little better pressure on it.

Anyone try a boat polish on that? Anyways Just a thought in case i cant get the M105 to work.
