I have 2007 lexus es350. The paint is peeling around the sunroof. What can I do?


would be the clear coat peeling you are seeing
should not need a full roof respray unless very bad

best option
get a quote from a car spray painter re-gel coat the roof
takes a fine sanding the roof area that is peeling
and a few coats of clear cote gel
and buff to a great finish

The clear is peeling on the paint on my explorer sport truck 2004 How can I fixed


The damaged clear has to be gently sanded off, the paint layer repaired if necessary and a new coat of clear sprayed on. Thus is not a diy job if you have no experience with paint and body work. It will require some specialized tools and knowledge. The tools and supplies will probably cost you near what a shop will charge to fix it.

Peeling paint



Our firm supplied Ford the paint durability technology that was used at the Ford Kansas City facility that manufactured the Mazda Tribute. Essentially all Tributes during that time period were paint below Ford's minimum paint thickness specifications taht was used for quality control This information on the 2003 Mazda Tribute may be found in the book that we published on page 47.

Have 2005 BA MK11 shockwave blue falcon,paint flaking on bonet & under rear window,what should i do ?


You may want to reference the Ford Australian Forum Boards.

There has been active discussion on owners being compensated
for particular model years due to a fault with the Shockwave paint.

On a separate note, the auto industry uses our technology for paint durability measurements (film thickness).

We have issued two press releases and have contacted Ford Senior Management on the impact of outsourcing paint applications process and quality control to the Paint Suppliers.

Press Release 1
New Books Reveal Vehicle Paint Quality Flaws Associated with Outsourcing

Press Release 2
Billions Discovered for Recovery by Automakers

We have released two books -
Basic Guide - For the Consumer
Technical Guide - For The Automaker and Auto Dealer

"MAKING IT RIGHT'
Why your Car Payments
are lasting longer than your
FACTORY PAINT JOB

We do have research data on various automakers vehicle models from the factory which shows they were released to the automaker, auto dealer and consumer below Ford's paint thickness specifications.

Low film thickness results in paint peeling, stone chipping and body rusting.

Paint applied too thick will crack.

We are advocating a "Truth in Finish Disclosure" to protect automakers, auto dealers and consumers.

You may want to advise your auto dealer on the book and do a search inside the book on either Amazon or our website for additional information.
