Tiny bumps in paint surface... how do I get em' out?

Just waxed my car, and I still have these tiny bumps in the surface.

Should I use a clay compound or something?

Any tips appreciated, thanks.

The clay bar is the best thing to use! The best way to use it is if your car is wet go in an up and down motion at the infected parts. I use mothers clay bar and it works great.

I agree...using a clay bar will make your paint as smooth as glass.

Let me add that you won't fully appreciate a clay bar until you use it on a 16 year old car... :o

You guys are right about the claybar treatment. I used that for the first time ever on my car to remove the overspray and other junk on my paint...and I have to say that my car turned out looking brand new after that and a quick wax job. May have taken 4 hours total for the first wash, clarbar(x2) and waxing, but it was well worth it for the one whole day I got to see it clean. Damn rain!
