Cleaning up the paint

Recommended Posts

Your diagnosis is probably correct. I had my '88 Cherokee repainted by Maaco when that happened, but it was a mistake. The new paint looked good for about a year, then it started to face and chalk. Now I have rust peeking through the paint on the roof, and the finish looks like a flat rather than a gloss.


What I would suggest that you try is a light sanding with wet-dry paper, trying to sand away the burned clear coat but leave the color coat -- then respray with a new clear coat.


Disclaimer: I think this will work, but I have not tried it yet.
