Cloudy haze in polish....humid day ? I decided to give our airstream a fresh polish. When we purchased our 1973 it was mirror like finish. We let it go the last year, winter was under cover so didnít get too bad. I used middle grade nuvite then followed up with S. In my building where I was doing this it was humid but not dripping. I got the finish looking great, even took a photo to show my friend.

Now here may come the issue. I decided to use a quick coat of that F11 top coat wax. The stuff you spray on and itís nice and smooth, you canít scratch it, you nails just glide off.

When I took the airstream from my building and brought it home into the light it looked cloudy. It definitely does not look like mirror or the photo I took earlier.

Did I seal in a layer of humidity? Will it bake off ? Should I give a fresh coat of the S polish to remove that F11 topcoat and try to get back the mirror look ?
And not wax it after ? Something to strip that F11? Mineral spirits?

Anyone ever have this issue ? Ideas ?
