Now my car has been sitting outside a shop for about 2 months while we were searching for a few parts since the motor was out and i just got it back today. So I gave it a nice wash and used some banana wax (courtesy of Infiniti) and did the hood. Well I decided to do the roof since it felt rough. I started to do so and my microfiber pads and towels turned straight burgundy (car color). Is this bad and should I stop waxing the roof? Does that mean the clear on my roof is done?
Thats a brain twister.
I think you would be able to see a difference in the paint if your clear coat was gone.
My first thought was a color wax was on the car.
Second is it could be a repaint with an enamel based paint.
Third is that somehow you got a abrasive substance in your MF towels
Over spray from work being done in the shop.
I would first wash it down with dishwashing liquid and hot water to strip any wax off the roof of the car and I would re condition, wax, glaze or what ever your choice of protection is.
I know some people swear by clay, but clay is abrasive and claying the paint can cause a whole new additional set of problems and create even more work.
