The wife and I took our 1 month old '09 Jetta Sportwagen TDI down to the Florida Gulf Coast to visit some family last week. Got back last night and washed the car today. One of the larger bug splatters on the upper hood was tough to get off... Well, after gently scrubbing with the wash mitt I thought I had it off. Once I pulled in the garage I noticed that there was still some bug residue. Out came the Turtle Wax Tar n' Bug remover and after 5 minutes of rubbing with an old T-shirt, no progress. It appears the clear coat is "wrinkled" about 1" area where this large bug hit the hood. I have had bird droppings eat through paint once before, but never a bug. Tried Blue Coral Scratch remover and some elbow grease with no luck as well. I'm apprehensive to break out the rubbing compound on a new vehicle, but I'm not sure even that will do the trick. This almost looks like wet sanding and respraying may be the only way to fix. I may be a decent DIY mechanic, but I know my limits when it comes to paint and paint repair. Does anyone else have any experience with such clear coat damage? Since the color coat is still undamaged can this be repaired without respraying the whole panel?
