Question about 2002 Toyota Camry
Peeling clear coat on roof above rear window on black 1999 toyota corolla. how to fix it?
some have suggested maaco paint job others said its a common problem and can be fixed with using correct car polish.
Well it is a common problem with Toyota paint jobs. Unfortunatly a simple wax wont stop this from continuing all though it will hide it from site for a while. The problem has to do with the factory paint job, so a repaint (by Maco or any other botom dollar body shop) will only be a band-aid fix, and will most likely rear it's ugly head somewhere down the line. If you intend to sell the car this may be a way to make it look sharp and easier to sell. **** if you intend to keep it I would not sugest it as you will most definatly be dissapointed as a repaint is only a temporary fix for this issue.
To thoroughly fix this issue you would need to have the car professionally stripped (at least down to the collor coat) and repainted. This will be expensive, and most likely will cost more than it is worth for a car that old. I would start by checking to see if there was a factory recall on the paint for that year, make, and model.
