    Clear Coat failure or not?

    Trying to see if this is salvageable or not, got the jeep about 9 months ago and just now started thinking about fixing this.




    Thanks

    Yikes! I've never seen that before, whatever it is, that looks really nasty to fix. I'm sure someone here will know....

    Technically what you have there is usually called Crows Feet. It is an issue with Clear Coats, but it could also be on the Base Coat. Unfortunately not much choice but to just respray the hood from what I've learned. It usually does only occur on the hood, it is caused by the heat generated. Depending on the age of the vehicle, you might be able to get Jeep to redo the paint for you.

    Damn from what i can see, looks mostly like the clear coat and not base coat, but I am not 100%. Its a 1998 and I am not the original owner, probably no chance Jeep would redo it. Any idea what it would cost to redo it?

    It probably is in the Clear, it usually is. As for a cost, I have no idea, because I don't know much about the Las Cruces, NM area as far as what body shops charge. I would say around a few hundred. Wish I could be more accurate.

    Agreed. You will probably need a repaint.

    Unfortunately, yes, you will have to repaint that. No two ways about it.
