Surface feels rough on roof of 2003 C320
I have a less than two year old 2003 C320 with 35,000 miles. For the last couple of months, every time I dry the car after washing, the chamois makes a funny sound as I dry the roof. After the last washing, I ran my fingers over the roof and it felt like very fine sandpaper. The paint looks perfect, but from the roof to about halfway down the A and C pillars, the suface feels rough. I used Meguiar's clearcoat safe paint cleaner, polish, and wax (two coats), and it is a little smoother, but nowhere near the perfectly smooth finish that it used to have, and that most of the rest of the vehicle STILL has. My windows feel the same - like very fine sandpaper.
The pool was just refinished at my condo building and my parking space is just underneath the edge of the pool deck in a carport. I think the top of the car must have been contaminated with something and I guess I will have to get it professionally removed? Any suggestions?
