If it hasn't gotten too bad, you can use some 3M rubbing compound to help get rid of the oxidation. Just remember to go over it with wax -perferably a sealer and glaze afterwards.

Buffing out it would help alot. On my old truck it was pink from all the oxidation and I did a 6 stage treatment by Mequires that make it look like new again. Took alot of work though.

guys i got an easy answer for you

you need oxygone available from my site www.waterlesscarwashproducts.com then i reccomend topping it off with the ultra ion.

The oxygone will restore the paint in 1 to 2 applications depending on how bad it is, even the ultra ion will help restore it a little bit.

Any questions just ask
