Re: Paint lacquer peeling?

Best remedy I can suggest is to get some lacquer (an aerosol would do), spray some into the cap, and dilute a little with thinners, then very carefully apply with a fine artist's brush, working the strokes upwards to avoid runs.

Naturally, do this on a dry day, with the affected panel in the sunshine so that it dries to a gloss as quickly as possible with minimal moisture absorbtion.



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