They are caused, (I know you didn't ask but this is what I was told)
The surface not been cleaned of polish correct, or prepped right.
Its normally silicone in the cleaner that hasn't been removed.
Did you do it yourself?

mirco blister's, caused by a part previously resprayed and done when cold and or bad or no moisture trap in air line, or when weather is damp and left to dry in the damp, they apper when weather is cold and swell when weather get's hot, when waxing probally just shown them up and highlighted them, could pluck them out to make like a stone chip then fill in with some paint, but depends how many you got, if there is some I'll garantee you'll end up with more and more, there almost almost contagious :lol:
only way then is to strip paint to bare steel and start again :wink:
