Topic: 20V Paintwork Problem :( :( :(

hey y'all

This one is for 20V OWNERS and KNOWLEDGABLE SPRAY PAINTERS.

My 20v has this paint 'eczema' and it's a sight to look at

Pics below

Nadeem told me he knows a dude that can fix it for me...but forgot about details :?

The way I see it, I have TWO OPTIONS:

1. have the clearcoat buffed, paintwork cleaned up & cleancoat re-sprayed (if it's possible)

OR

2. have the clearcoat removed, re-spray paint & clearcoat re-sprayed

ADVICE pls...this faded look is killing me :cry:  :cry:  :cry:

Damn, thats a sore sight mate ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/blink  I'm assuming you park the car outside and often in sunlight (but even that happens over a period). My option would be your second one despite the fact it may be more expensive but worthwhile in the long run.

If you ain't on da gass, I'll be kickin yo ass...

Was the bonnet re-sprayed before? My friend (panel beater) had a look at these pic's & suggests a rub down & re-spray.
