do you know what causes those tiny little checks are from?No. You'll need to strip it and repaint.
i would like to know how you would go about taking off the clear coat?can this be fixed by taking the clear coat off
sanding, alot of sanding, and if the paint is bad then I would just blast it and repaint and finish with a tougher cleari would like to know how you would go about taking off the clear coat?
So if the paint is not as good as it should be, what type would be a better choice since it would sprayed in a non commercial environment and could be any type, do you know what might stand up to heat and exposer better? and could the factory color be matched?You can thank big brother in Californication for that. They required all paint applied in the GM plants there to be water based around 89 or so. GM simply went all water based nationwide. Took them 10 years to figure out how to keep the clear coat from coming off.
GM also shut down all assembly in CA within a couple years. Good for them.
this is whom i have been using for the last 5 years.what type would be a better choice
Ya , along with base coat. Prep will be ultra critical if ttl recoat to last any longer. Ya, there's also different coatings qualities too.can this be fixed by taking the clear coat off
Ra , the Sun God did it with Neutrino Arrowsdo you know what causes those tiny little checks are from?
there is really no working on it. The unprotected basecoat, or color, has not been protcted by the clear coat. The clear has the UV protectors in it. That means the exposed areas are faded. There is not one thing you can do to make it look right. The best and easiest thing you can do right now is get a pressure washer and blast as much loose clear off as possible. Then wash with a grey or red scobright pad with some dishsoap. Mask and spray 3 new coats of clear of the panels. It'll look medicorely good, and might be all you needed or wanted.I'm going to work on sanding the hood
