i just washed my car today and drove back up to school .. when i get here after the 2 hour drive i take the things out of my trunk and notice that above the emblem there is a like what looks like bird crap. but it was old and i thought i washed it off. like i totaly slammed the pressure washer right on it. but it didtn come over. i had to use a damp cloth to get it off. but any way under the purple berry grossness there was my clear coat alll crackled.
lets hope a nice little clay bar application will make it all better.. omg i hope so

Re: Paint cracking (dog_poopie)

can you post a pic of it?
sounds like crows feet to me, but that was prone to happen on laquor (sp.) finishes of older cars, not the newer clear-coar multistage paints they use now.
use the paint warranty!!

Re: Paint cracking (GTINC)

post a picture of the damage. if the paint is starting to de-laminate or be afflicted by a bad primer job or whatever, then its a factory defect.
i doubt bird poop that sat over night or a few days is gonna etch the paint that fast.

in some cases all it needs is a few hours in direct sunlight...wipe off that crap as soon as you see it!!!!!!

Anytime sap or bird doo gets on paint get it of ASAP....it will destroy paint witnin a day if it is not recently waxed, fairly fresh wax will give you some time, maybe a few days max.
