Re: Paint lacquer peeling?

Not sure if totally relevant to the goal here but, I found that U-Pol clear coat was the best aerosol I could find to get a smooth finish. Most others dry with some irregularity. Also has a very good UV protection.

You may find though that thinners and brush application will help hugely with the finish in this case and any reasonable aerosol will do the job. Used a whole can of Simonz laquer on the rear bumper of my Passat and it never got a smooth finish after a lot of work. The U-Pol went on, it was smooth and shiny immediately with one coat and no polishing!
