    Not that this will help, but I just recently got a BMW X5 in that was splashed over the entire vehicle with a form of acid. I thought at first sight that I would have to strip the entire vehicle.

    just for kicks, I tried buffing the hood and amazingly the stains buffed out. The stains were a dark purplish color against a pearl white paint job.

    i say this just so you might try the easy way first. Though those stains look bad, there's a chance they're not deep.

    Another example of why "My" next paint job will be a "Wrap"!

    I may may try that, but I'm not very confident due to the bubbling.

    Just curious, did you ever resolve what caused this? Was it the cover or the paint job?

    Im asking because my car is in the body shop getting restoration and I plan to garage it this winter and I wanted to put a good cover on it too. This thread makes me think twice about putting a car cover on a freshly painted car.

    Everyone who has looked at the car has a different opinion, but all seem to at least agree it was a paint/prep problem combined with the cover, not the cover itself.
