.It looks pretty good from here though
I could see lacquer primer being the culprit because it's porous and sucks up moisture like a sponge and if there isn't any etch or epoxy underneath it could start to rust. I've never seen oil cause this kind of a reaction 1 year after it's painted though, usually oil contamination is visible right away...the only way I could see oil cause this is if it was painted in cool weather and when it warmed up it expanded and made the paint let go from the metal. The car does look like it was cut and buffed so we don't know if he had a massive fish eye in those spots...if he did have fish eyes in those spots and they where cut and buffed and painted when cool, then I could possibly see oil as an issue. Well unless the OP gives us this information, like mentioned, the OP needs to give us that information.
