zetecgt The clay should pick them up. You may have to use some elbow grease, but surely, the clay will do the trick

XitTriq NO, for sure, those will come out with clay! I had that same problem on the same part on the same color. I tried polish and buffing and that almost worked, but then I saved up, bought some clay and detail spray. After rubbing the bar over that area for a few minutes I could no longer feel or see those sandpaper-like bumps. Clay it and look at the clay when you are through. You will see so much crap that it pulled off the paint that you will flip-off the road for being so dirty! Hatchbacks always have dirty butts, they just need to be wiped a bit more often than others!

Sting2324 Reason I ask, is because it almost looks like paint blistering, fisheyes or even rockchips. I suppose you can try and level it down with light/medium duty compound. Let us know how it turns out.

Nope original paint, I bought this car brand new about almost two years ago, just noticed it like back in January of this year. It definitely wasn't there before, my parents have white cars and they get oxidation like these red dots on them from the crappy air we have here in California, but that stuff always comes off when you wax. These don't come off when I wax, and didn't come off when I clayed it.

revamp if the clay didn't clean it all up, a polish is the next step. I would recommend einszett products.

TheAnswerMVP2001 The spots are still there I have clayed it and basically all that did was smooth out the bumps, now it is just white dots. I have included some pics, the quality is bad up you should be able to see what I have going on, really would appreciate any help in getting rid of these they are annoying and only on the back bumper.

The past few months i have recently discovered these little white "pin" dots i guess you could call them, they are all over the top of the rear bumper right below where my hatchback trunk opens up. I have no clue what they are, they remind me of little red spots I have seen on my white cars, but I can always get those off by either scrubbing hard or with wax. I have tried both on my Black Focus but they still won't go away. You can even feel them when you rub your hand over the bumper. So I'm wondering if any one knows what these are and how I can possible get rid of them, like I said for some reason they are just on the rear bumper and not on the rest of the car. This car is new, I have only had it for a year and I cover it up a majority of the time that I'm not using it so I am very puzzled. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

thomasp94 It sounds like overspay. That can happen if for instance you are parked near a building being painted and they are spraying the building rather than using paint rollers. Definitly use clay, it should come off without much effort.
