Paint (Lack Of It)

Recommended Posts

over the last year the lacquer on my red 2003 Tsport has blown on nearly every panel. I have never had this with any other car so am wondering if it is a known issue manufacture repair item?

Japanese manufacturers are notorious for very thin paint and red is prone to fading with any high-volume low budget manufactured car i.e. Corolla, Corsa, Saxo, Clio, 106, 206 etc they're terrible for it.

Get yourself some Compound and a machine polisher then go over the car. Then Polish it a few times with Autoglym or something similar, finally giving it a few coats of wax.

If you're not comfortable doing it yourself (it is tough and can wreck your paint if you don't know what you're doing with compound and a machine polisher) then go and send it in to a local body shop :)
