My brother has had the same problem with his 67BGT. It is painted a sort
of mineral blue (respray) and he was having the exact problem you were
having. He has wet sanded the entire finish tried several coats of
several products including two %100 carnuba waxes, initially his best
results were with 'system 2000' but then he tried a Meguire's product
the name of which escapes me and it had an immediate, dramatic effect.
Old paint is old paint and I think you are at best postponing the
inevitable new paint job but I will foward this to him and he will know
the product number.
