Hi, as Donald has correctly pointed out - it is the lacquer layer which has either had lacquer applied on top of existing lacquer - or there was moisture present whilst it was being sprayed - its up to you whether you view it as cost effective to repair this or just to live with it.

It may be worth getting a few quotes if its beyond what you feel comfortable to tackle - but bear in mind that on a car of that age, it will be difficult to get a good match (fresh paint with old).

Best of luck with your decision.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
