Clear Coat Repair

6 posts in this topic

On my 1996 Holiday Rambler, Navigator I have clearcoat delaminating (full body paint)on the front cap (above windshield), rear cap (upper portion & onto top area of cap) & on curb side above the top rail molding but not onto the roof.

Is their an easy way to feather the edge of the clearcoat and just re-spray the exposed areas or do I have to remove all clearcoat even if it is a good bond with the paint?

What product should I use to remove the loose clearcoat? Scuff pad or sand paper? What grit? Power sand or hand finish?

I checked the jrazz posting...thanks.

I have had body shop quotes but want to try it myself. I do a lot of my repairs but not this much paint.

I am a FMCA member 220386. Been RV'n a few years but just joined the forum tonight.

Have usually been able to get answers from RV'n friends but the clearcoat is a new one for me.

We do visit TX often. If not every winter at least every other winter. Our favorite areas are the Gulf coast and Big Bend.

You mis-read our profile. We are in Michigan. Easy mistake....MI or WI. They do touch each other so you were close ;)
