Re: Paint lacquer peeling?

Paintwork warranty is normally 2-3 years.

Its only a 1 inch spot, I'm 100% sure it can be done on a DIY basis with only the OP knowing where to look to see any evidence of the repair.

It needs to be remembered, that its an 10 year old car, so spending circa 75-100 on a repair which no-one would really recoup at resale time isn't cost effective.

Treat it whilst its a molehill, and it won't turn into a mountain.


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