Ruined the Finish?

Hey everybody!

About two months ago I moved my unit from uncovered to covered storage. For the occasion, I decided to give my baby a bath and a shine! I used mild car wash product, and then did a shine with a modern spray-on, wipe off car wax. It looked great!

But then I decided to address my corrosion. I have some mild belt line corrosion, so I sprayed on the anti-corrosion product I bought from the Airstream store in Ohio. It was their recommended product. Alas, I threw the can away by accident and don't remember what it was.

When I took my unit out of storage, I noticed that where I had used the anti corrosive, it hardened to an ugly cloudy streaky finish. I've tried wiping it off with a soft cloth and mild soap, no luck.

Here is a picture. Any suggestions??? Did I ruin my baby's shiny finish?

I had something similar happen. I rubbed in WD40 and that solved the problem.
