Passenger rear quarter

I noticed this weekend while washing my truck that there is a haze located just above my exhaust pipe. The normal wash did not remove it and it is not overly noticeable, the sun just hit it right. Has anyone ever had this and cleaned it? What removes it without going too crazy.

As this is the NFL draft weekend, I will spend as much time on Saturday, detailing my truck, watching my tv in the garage, etc as it takes, so I will have the time.

Sorry no. This is the best picture I have of the driver's quarter...I don't have the picture of the passenger side quarter. But if you can imagine, the tailpipe coming out on this side, around the mudflap area, it appears just a little hazy.

Have you tried waxing it? I had the mud haze BAD on fenderflares, doors, bumpers, and bedsides to the point where you could actually feel it. I just gave it a good wax and it was glossy and smooth as ever. My suspicion, something to do with the exhaust pipe. Do you let your truck idle alot?

No, I don't sit in idle much. It is due to get a good bath this weekend and wax this weekend. I'll go ahead and work that area over a little extra before I wax.

i cannot view the pic on the computer im at right now but normally if there is a haze over paint use a rubbing compound with a cloth rub it in a circlaur motion or use a high speed buffer and it should take care of it. If your not familiar with using a h/s buffer find someone that is comfortable cause there is a risk of burning through your paint if your not careful.
