Clear Coat Starting to peel on Roof!?! Any way to repair it without respray?

Hey guys,

Last night I noticed a couple small spots on my roof that are starting to flake off clear coat off. Which sucks because I take great care of my paint....and its waxed AT LEAST once a year and washed very frequently.

Ive seen a few sketchy ways of DIY repairing these spots and re-clearing it yourself... have any of you guys had any experience with this? The spots are only about a quarter size or less... so its just starting.... but I want to fix it before it gets worse. Unfortunately I don't have the extra money to have the entire roof re-sprayed.

Thanks guys for any help or advise you could give!

-Corey

Seems like a logical fix.

I would recommend you start saving to have it re-sprayed any diy fix is going to be temporary at best.

Also wax your car more than once a year

I know... I definitely need to... Its not for the lack of wanting to wax it... but more of a lack of time...

3 kids... 2 dogs.... 50hr/week job.... children extra curricular activities... wedding planning.... the list goes on and on LOL.

But yes... I do need to make a conscious effort to wax it more. I agree.

Since I work at the Chevrolet dealer... maybe one of the body shops we sublet body work to will give me a SMOKIN deal.

Get a spray sealant, they last longer and are easy to apply. The one I use takes about 35mins including cure time for the entire car. (Adam's Quick Sealant with an applicator)

Funny, I wax mine about twice a month, and probably drive it a total of 6-7 times between the 2 weeks.

Not sure what that comment was intended for...

But, I drive mine 7 days a week.... and put probably 15-20k miles on a year... so it doesn't do much sitting. I garage it every night.... but its parked in the sun all day while im at work.

I understand the busy with life thing. I'm just stupid about protecting the paint and keeping it clean so I don't drive it on rainy days or in the winter. Just a big difference from me to you. Good luck on the paint I've had that before on prior vehicles and it's a pain.
Tried re clearing it on a subdirectories and it lasted not quite a year

Yeah im not looking forward to fixing it. Im gunna try the product that the other guy above suggested.... hopefully if I apply that to the roof a couple times a month then maybe I can at least stop it from spreading.
