Thumbs down Damn Bonnet Laquer Came Off 2day!

why does ford mainly EA's laquer come off so easily,like 2day i was getting my car ready for a meet and i hosed it only to watch the laquer come off in big strips so i though eww thats F'n ugly so i kept going stripped the rest of by hosing as i didnt want to leave it like it was,why do ford put that crap on knowing it strips so easily,i seen a few other examples posted before but today it was my turn..

i didnt like the idea of leaving it dodgy,so i stripped all the laquer off the bonnet..

how common is this problem and why dont they use a better product or something(and no it aint age as this aint my original bonnet,it used to be clear and shiny now its still nice just not clear shiny anymore..

Dunno mate but the same thing happened to my red telly tubby (telstar tx5). Ive had my EB bonnet resprayed so it doesnt suffer the flaking top coat. (yet)

Re: Damn Bonnet Laquer Came Off 2day!

My EB has that issue on its roof. The paint underneath is good, so I just take it thru auto car washes now to strip it!!! It's working well so far
