Check out the various car detailing forums.

So I would have a professional detailer fix it, and at the same time apply OptiGuard.
That is not really a fix, rather an optical correction that makes it less visible. The defect is a physical distortion of the paint surface, and the only way to actually fix it is by doing a complete paint job all over. Who is going to do that? Those gooze bumps suck, but you don't really see them from 2 feet away, so I personally told my brain to just shut up about it
