Question about 1992 Volvo 960
My 1992 960 with a 166.000.00 plus miles runs and looks perfect and has been maintained mostly by Volvo on major maintenance repairs.
FOR KNOW REASON THE CLEARCOAT STARTED TO PEEL ON THE HOOD AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. DOES ANYONE HAVE THIS PROBLEM. aND WILL VOLVO REPAIR THIS PROBLEM SINCE IT WAS NOT A FAULT OF MINE??????????
Google Chrome interrupted me and sent off an incomplete response,
As I was saying, 'Dealer added' clearcoat is doomed to failure according to an expert automotive painter I knew who did only high-end repainting on expensive vehicles.
He claimed that unless the clearcoat was applied over paint that had not yet cured, it would not bond to the paint underneath of it. It could behave like two unrelated layers and the clearcoat, not having a molecular bond with the paint below it, could shatter and separate for several reasons; temperature changes and (as it was in my case) exposure to salt air were two of these. I doubt that Volvo will do anything for your car since cosmetics are considered secondary to mechanical failure and after 16 years, they may consider the complaint petty.
