Peeling Clear Coat

Painter wanted $2500 to repair peeling clear coat. I picked up this tip somewhere on this forum. $30...sweet. I'm happy with results so far, the plan is to give it another coat in a year. This took me about two hours.

Try clicking on the picture. Should make it large enough to read.

So you took off the clear coat.

Won't that harm the paint not having the protection of the clear coat?

I'm no expert but clear coat was peeling by itself, I just knocked off the loose stuff. The paint was beginning to look faded, the Zep really brought it back AND it protects the paint. Looks great.

Try a small area so you can compare it in a few weeks. Amazing!

Check these threads out...

Quite a bit of discussion on these products, their use and the results over on the vintage RV forum.

This is my recent effort on my MH.

Zep Wetlook Project

This is a longer, more detailed thread on the product and processes.

My coach(2005 Winnebago Journey) had the same issue. I purchased it in November and worked a repaint into the deal. I just got it back from the dealer today and it looks good. Unfortunately it is peeling above the drip rail on the sides too. I couldn't get that worked into the deal so one day I am going to have to get it done.
