How do I fix spider cracks in car paint?

How do you fix car paint? Mine looks like it has spider web shapes on it. They're not super noticeable but I hate them.

With some careful work, you can definitely fix the spider cracks in your car paint at home. Here’s how to do it:
  • Dry sand the area with 320-grit sandpaper. Be careful not to sand through the clear coat or you might have to
    repaint your car
  • Next, treat the area with a two-part urethane clear coat spray. To do so, first spray the sanded area with a tack coat, then a wet coat.
  • Once the area is dry (this should take 24 to 36 hours), wet sand the area with 600-grit sandpaper.
  • Check over the area to make sure the cracks are gone. If you need to, you can repeat this process.
