Hi,i recently used a DUPLI-COLOR CLEARCOAT TOUCH UP PAINT on 2 small areas where the clearcoat had peeled off when i replaced an emblem on my 1995 Deville.It is a bit noticeable when light shines at a certain angle--but more importantly, IT STOPS THE CLEARCOAT FROM PEELING OFF ANYMORE.

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

My 2005 mustang is getting wet on the rear and front drivers side only when it rains. What could it be? It doesnt look like its coming from the door. i removed the carpets to see if i see any water but...


you need to unblock your gullies, open bonnet first then follow the ridge on the roof down the side of the front screen into the bonnet, you should see a hole where water escapes, push a thin piece of wire / metal coat hanger down it to clear - do same atthe back, this should solve the problem

The paint on the hood of 06 Chrysler 300 peeling


U will find that this is a repair at some time. the mil thickness of the clear is to low and the uv light is breaking down the base coat causing the clear to peel and the elements to penatrate to the primer.
Probaly looking at $350 to $600 depending whether they blend the color on the fenders for a good match

Peeling clear coat on black 1999 toyota corolla.


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.

Good Luck!

I have a 1993 buick lesabre custom that has flaking paint on the roof and trunk lid. Im not a body or paint man but I have started to sand down the areas with 400 grit and have applied some coats of...


Initial sanding can be done with 100 or it will take you a year to sand it down. You can either use a power sprayer and have paint mixed to match, or use cans made by duplicolor ...You will never match the existing paint though because it changes with age...I use the larger cans when available (marked for "vans") You can use 400 wet paper between coats and if you want to get crazy, use 800 wet when finished. Wait a few weeks and use white compound, clean well, in another couple of weeks, use clear-coat, sand again and when fully cured (few more weeks) then wax. Never sand unless paint has dried for at least 24 hours...even when it looks and feels dry, it can roll, and damage everything you have done.

I need to know the color code of my 2000 ford f150 radio


Look in the driver's side door jamb. There should me a sticker with the details of your truck.

At the bottom you'll see EXT PNT:

Mine says EXT PNT: SU

I believe SU is the the color code. You can probably order the paint from the dealer, or any good paint supplier can get you the equivalent.

Remember that paint can fade and change color over time, so if you're not a pro painter, blending the bright, new color will be very hard to do; you might as well just paint the entire panel or the whole truck if you're not already going to.

Rust on the roof


Well, I guess u want to know how to fix it? Sand down the roof, if rust is bad, use a rough sandpaper to start, work your way down to fine, or better yet , extra fine. Clean off all dust, spray w/ primer, let dry (time needed , check can), spray light coats of paint, allowing each to dry before spraying the next. Too heavy a coating will make the paint run and look like cr_ap, so be patient and do several light coats for best results. Make sure u do it in a clean area (dust, bugs, dirt, rain, dew, will mess up the quality of the job, so do it when it's dry, not dusty, and make sure conditions remain that way til it dries. Good luck!
