Default haze on carbon fiber

How do you fix the haze you get on carbon fiber parts? I knew there was a thread a while ago about using some products on it to make it look like new again but couldnt find it using the search.

Also, my paint/clear coat has oxidation spots on it. White splotches for those who dont know or need descriptions. How do I get rid of this? Do I need to repaint the car?

i think i know what thread your talking about. But someone on here suggested 3m cleaner/wax. You can pick it up at a boat store, its for gel coat.

sand it down and put some clear coat paint on and buff it out, and call it a day. also if the c/b is already yellow, you can just buy your self another hood, cuz that thing is gone, tryed it, it looked good but the yellow didn't come off. good luck

from experiance, once a car has started oxidizing its all over, however if you buy a buffing machine (DA machine) , and dimond crystol polish its a temp fix, will last a couple months at the least and a year if waxed regularly. you cant stop oxidization once it starts just make it look like its not there w/polish. you can also aply the polish by hand if you dont want the machine, but u have to aply a decent amount of pressure.
as for the carbon fiber i would realy like to know about that cuz i have haze in only one spot that you can only see in certian light from a certian angle but when u see it its so obvious and looks like a *** stain.
