Why the hell is my car’s paint still black?
Posted July 25, 2019 07:18:56 I’m in the process of removing the paint on my 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX.
It’s been sitting on the car for a few years, with the car’s original paint being used to paint the roof.
But the paint’s been stripped and the car has been repainted over, so now the paint has dried and is peeling off.
“It’s been a bit of a journey,” I tell my wife.
“I’ve been out to the paint shop and it was really quite shocking to see it in such a state.”
What I didn’t realise was that this was happening to one of my cars.
“So, how did it happen?” she asks.
She’s not the only one who’s noticed the paint peeling away from her car, I ask.
In my experience, a few things can cause paint peels.
First, some paint is damaged when you paint the car.
Second, the car may have been previously used to be painted over.
Third, the paint may have worn off.
If you’ve been painting for years, you’ll likely have done a lot of that work.
I don’t know what causes it all, but it’s always something to be careful about.
What I do know is that, for the time being, the Subaru Imprada WRX I have left in the shop is black.
The paint on the side of my car has started peeling and cracking.
The only way I know how to get it to come back is to get the car repaired.
I have been told that the paint could have started to chip off because of the weather in Queensland.
My wife is pretty sure I’ll need to replace it, but I’ve had to find a new car to paint for the foreseeable future.
