Detailing Question from Ruth

Submitted on 30/04/2012

Hi, we have recently purchased our car second hand and, whilst all other panels on the car appear to have excellent paintwork for the age of the car, we have an unusual 'cracking' effect on the paint on the boot lid. These are not superficial scratches, as when I run my fingernail across them, I can feel the indentation. I have also used a clay bar and super resin polish in an attempt to improve the hazy look on the paint but not completely removed it. I am not sure whether this is a smart repair job or will require a respray. Any ideas? Model: Peugeot 307cc


I have seen this on many Peugeot's. You can make it look a bit better by polishing it with colour wax (get the one thats a bit darker than your car as it drys a bit lighter). But it doesn't last very long. Just do it every now and again. Or if you have a read of this page, then take a trip to Kraftwork. I would think the paint will need to be completely striped, then respraying.
