Default What the heck is on my hood :(

I'm relatively good at cleaning cars. I washed my car to prep it for a coat of wax and saw this in my hood. I don't want to seal it in with the wrong product. Any ideas?

Hit it with some cutting polish and see if that removes it. It's hard to tell what it is exactly, but it looks like it came on to your car from the side angle. Is it only on the hood?

Yea it looks like it got splashed on there from the side at an angle. It's just on 3/4 of the hood and a little bit on the front left fender.

I wouldnt worry about it, just some light polish and it should do it.

Came out great. It almost looked like hard water spots to me but it didn't make sense that it was only in certain spots like that...
