Whats up fellas

when i go to paint my regal i am stripping to bare metal so this question is more out of curiosity.
My regal now gets like black mold/mildew whatever in the paint if left for a while without washing. What would cause this?
Thx

Did you paint it with a loaf of bread?

It may have a yeast infection... treat it with a coating of Vagisil.

Unwaxed porous paint, left in humid conditions with natural elements (tree sap, pollen, etc)

So bad clear coat maybe? Cheap paint job Making it porous? Im mostly just looking to make sure its taken care of and not repeated when i get it painted.
Thanks

All paint degrades over time, the paint on my wagon is like a piece of scotchbrite on the upper surfaces. A good waxing will slow it down a lot...along with regular baths
