    Default White spots on car roof

    Hi, why is it that these appear mostly on the roof, what is it, how does it arise?

    The car is waxed maybe just age ..

    Thanks

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Nah .. it's off the paint work .. it's like patches ... or sunburnt something like that .. its all over the roof. Some other cars even have it when it sorta peels off.

    Poor repair job, I was told.

    My fathers car has it. They said that someone had painted on top of clear coat, which then started to peel.

    Actually, my dads car is pretty much only that, it's over the whole car. I don't want to know what sort of accident it was in to need the whole car repainted.

    I know back in the mid to late 80's Toyota's of that era were terrible for it. Bad paint. It might be worth taking the car to a groomer or panel beater to see if it can be buffed out.

    My girlfriend's car which used to belong to my daughter has this problem on it's roof, as far as I know it has never been painted/repaired, I have also seen a Peugeot owned by my friend with this problem on it's bonnet.

    is this just normal "paint failing due to twenty years of UV exposure" or something else?
    When it comes to computers there is a difference to what you need and what you want, the former being less than half the price of the latter.
