My 91 Dodge has what appear to be a bunch of pits in the existing clearcoat on the hood and front fenders.  What is the best way to fix this?  I have thought about wetsanding the clearcoat smooth, but I do not know how much clear I have to work with and I don't want to go through it.  Another thought I had was spraying some more clear, and then wetsanding it smooth, but I am concerned about adhesion of the new clear to the existing clear.  Rubbing compound doesn't seem to cut it (using a PC 7247 DA Polisher).  Haven't tried a rotary since I don't on one.  Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,
Neil

Clearcoat problems are usually indicative of underlying paint problems. Most likely you need to sand down the basecoat, repaint, and reapply the clearcoat.

Please see http://www.paintscratch.com/whatorder.htm#clearprob for more information.
