My detailer came today and took on the task of buffing and polishing the paint on my Euro Pantera. Most of the paint is original and has plenty of nicks and other issues. The main one he called spider webs where it looks like it went through the carwash 700 times. Nonetheless he got it to look its best and he thought every six months or so he could keep it going.

Excellent! Why would it need it every 6 months, did you move to a harsh climate? Sold my orange car years ago because the lacquer paint was spider webbing. Tried polishing but it was beyond fixing, although looked great 5 feet away.
The car lives in the garage but he recommended reapplying the ceramic wax every six months. He only charges $50 for that and said it will keep the car looking the way it does now.
The spider webbing on this car is definitely there and looks like short scratches from the giant wheel at the car wash. Even after polishing if you look at an angle you can still see the scratches. It is easier to see the issue in the garage than out in the sun. Since the paint is sound and generally looks nice I plan to leave it as is.
