Paint bubbles

So recently I noticed paint bubbles, for lack of a better word in my paint. Just little like mounds or hills in my paint. I haven't washed the car in a while because it rains all the time and its freezing. But I don't think that's the problem. They are about the size of a marker tip. They are everywhere. I'll try to get a picture but it might be too little to pick up. Anyone have any ideas?

If the car has bodywork/bondo or rust underneath the paint that could be the reason it has bubbles

I've had the car over a year, why are they just now showing up? None of that has been done since I've got it. And rust could be possible but its just on one side of the car

It takes a couple of months for the bubbles to come out ( if done a bad way) he probably paid someone to do a cheap work just to sell the car

If these bubbles have just recently appeared, it is an underlying bad problem. Rust. Probably had an accident and repainted with crappy prep work. Bubbles like this can appear anywhere from 6months to 2-3 years after a paint job. Has ur car been sprayed? At least partially? Hate to say it, but u need to take it in and have it done right, or it will completely take over the car soon.
Gl,
Troy

My car has never been in an accident. The partial spray, I don't have a clue about, so that could be it. I checked on the other side and its there too. But its only around one height all around the car. It's not higher or lower, just level with the bottom of the window. It goes down about 4 inches and then stops on all sides of the car. I don't know if that's a good enough description to visualize or not....since its on all sides, a wreck wouldn't make sense anyway even if it hasn't been in one, because the whole care doesn't usually get sprayed in accidents I don't think

Okay. Thanks everyone for the help. I just was wondering why they popped up a couple weeks ago. Making sure it didn't just need to be washed or got chemicals on that I didn't know about or something. Don't really have the money for a paint job

Yeah its black and no I don't use anything like that. Just soap and water lol. But my dad did a few months ago wash my car (without me knowing) with dawn dish detergent. I know that can hurt paint. Could that possibly be the problem?

i think that stuffs pretty safe. i was asking because all my bubbles started appearing after i used a black detailer. i dont know if it caused it, or if it was just the cheapo paint job.

I've heard about 3 gallons should work? I also want it to shine like normal paint, not matte. So Id need glossifier correct? Three gallons of it too? Also, on cars (besides black and white) in the paint, there are the little like sparkles I guess you'd say. What is that called? I don't think I'd be able to get that effect with plasti dip, just curious
