Front bumper paint problems

Hey Guys....
I have some spider webs in the paint on my front bumper, to the touch its smooth. Is it possible to use some rubbing compound to get them out? If so please let me know which brand will do the job. Thanks in advance for all your help.

Re: Front bumper paint problems

Depends on where the spider webbing actually is... in the clearcoat or the paint? Gently use a fingernail or thumbnail to see if you can feel it.

If you can't feel it then I'd have to assume it's in the paint. You'd have to go through the clearcoat to get to it with rubbing compound, which obviously creates more of a problem than it solves.

You could try using some extra fine compound lightly to see if it's actually in the clearcoat. You'd want to use compound that's made to be used with clearcoat though. If you don't see any improvement then stop... it's in the paint.
