Crap. I knew I hould have posted what happened to me, but the damage was already probably done to your by the time i figured it out anyways....
Had the same thing happen to my car. Had the bra on for about a month, pulled it off to clean the car, and my heart fell into my stomach.
What ACTUALLY happened to mine, according to the body shop, is the clearcoat debonded from the base color. (still looked smooth, but that is what caused to color change) They claim that when water gets under the bra, which is going to happen, and the sun comes out right afterwards, the heat with moisture can cause this problem. (Kind of like putting a hot coffee cup on a peice of furniture. (Leaves that nice ring of damaged finish)
My paint was/is silver, but I don't know if color has anything to do with it.
In my case, and I think most cases, buffing wont do anything. Nothing is going to rebond that clearcoat. Had the whole hood resprayed.
looks good right now, but it still pisses me off, and I wonder how is going to look after a couple of years.
Sorry about your 'loss', sorry that I didn't post my experiences earlier. (like I say, it was probably to late for you by the time I figured out what was going on)
