looks like it was caused by water getting between the laquer and colour and blistering in the sun.

Lucky it was not 666 though.

Hi Hondo - looks like a break in the clear lacquer - I have seen similar caused by admiralty pidgeons. I know bird pooh can cause damage to that extent - are you sure some we lassy wasn't throwing nail varnish remover at it or some wee git going mad with the brake fluid. When winter arrives it'll probably get worse.

Like you I wondered similar, I wouldn't think it was either brake fluid or nail varnish remover. I'd guess the damage would be far more extensive.
Thanx hondo

As long as you just remove the lacquer,then you'll be OK to respray it with clear again.....but,you'll have a job hiding it on a bonnet.

If you have an eye for detail(which I suspect you do),then the bonnet and wing tops will need respraying...........

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
