Well, you know little fruit gremlins often peel oranges like Jim Carrey peeled off his clothes in "Bruce Almighty" and leave the skins on peoples cars.

Really though its probably some type of factory tape or wrap from when the car was sitting in a bay area prior to delivery.

Dude, just sell the car, so far you've complained about the paint, shifting gears, feeling claustrophobic, man buy something else and quit complaining about the Camaro.....Maybe an automatic Cadillac Escalade is for you, its auto, lots of room, and shiny black paint and wheels....

Unfortunately, orange peel in the paint is "normal" given the painting process GM uses. I even had it in my Corvette.

Claybar alone won't rid of orange peel. Unless it's pieces or actual orange peelings. (Um why is 54 banned?)

Anyway, I agree with joes407. If you're daring, a good buff job is really the only way to knock it down. Just don't go too crazy and burn the paint.

x2 Clay bar cleans the surface, will not rid the problem in the paint.
Wet sanding will do the trick, just be careful not to go through the color

He isn't banned, he is acting banned
