Default How to Fix Clear Coat Pealing?



How would you go about cleaning up this clear coat peeling? Does the entire fender need to be repainted or is there something I can do at home to fix or at least make it look a little better.

That needs to be re painted. No other way around it. Once the clear coat begins peeling or flaking off, you can either re clear that area, or have that area re painted.

Ok, I may just take it off and have a local body/paint shop repaint it. Unless there's any members in the Tri-state area (Ohio, Indiana, KY) that can do some painting...

Ouch, that's some bad failure. On my roof (freakin Canterbury clear coats... Never seen one without roof failure) I wet sanded with 1000 and 3000 grit JUST until the flakes were gone and then compounded and polished it. It doesnt look awesome, but it looks better. It's been 8 months since then and it looks the same as the day I did it. This is a very quick way to accidentally sand down to your primer though.
