Default Clear coat chipping

I washed and waxed the Subie a few weeks ago and just started noticing chipping in my clearcoat. You can see it as spots on the roof rails in the below pics:




Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. He spots on the actual roof are just rain residue.

Is there any way to stop these from growing without getting a paint job? Can I do anything to fix the existing damage?

I think the paint chips and duct tape actually go together quite well.

That sounds like a great idea. I think I will try to find some red tape to make it match...

You may have some type of chemical exposure, or tree sap that damaged the finish. My two cents, FWIW.

To re clear is really very simple. Just scuff it, clean it and spray it with a good clear!
