Need help I took off the molding from my doors and on just the one side there's about a 4 in wide by 6 haze spot and don't know what to do , the trucks really shined up and then I have this spot . Is there anyway I can get rid if it

Was the spot caused by the moldings?

I probably should have made it more clear .. there was caulking there that someone used to hold the molding on since it was falling off and I lightly wet sanded with 5000 grit and as soon as I did that the hazing appeared

Ewwww, yah, that can probably be fixed pretty easy if you know how to do it. I will leave that to someone with more paint experience, but if you didn't tear off the clear coat, you should be able to fix it up OK.
Good luck, I will be following this thread to see where it goes.

Well sir for future reference do not use sandpaper to remove things stuck to your paint. You don't have a haze you have fine scratches. You can get light duty rubbing compound and hand polish it to make it better.

Well if you've seen any of my post it's pretty easy to tell I'm a learner and not much of a knower but I did get Mcguires polishing compound and then hit it with the polish and it is gone for the most part and is completely not noticeable now without putting a light up to it let's just say in the future I'll think before I try something new

Live and learn. At least it wasn't that bad. I watched some one wash their entire plane with white scotch brite because they wanted to get all the crud off

If you used 5000 grit I would guess it will buff right out. With a spot that small You could do it with a drill and buffer head. Use a light compound. Nothing heavy or coarse. You can do it.
