It seems the clear coat on the roof of my 2010 LR4 has decided to throw in the towel. Was looking to get the roof painted before it gets too bad.

 

Do we have any body shop recommendations within the club? I'm in the Oakland/SF area.

Haven't seen him around in a while, but Rum_Ham worked at a body shop in the north bay. 

 

I don't know how bad your particular truck is, but good detailers can work wonders and that will be much better in the long run than a respray.

Thanks, Chad. Perhaps I'll try a good detail first. I'll update the thread with a couple photos when I get home

Oh... Yeah, nevermind, you'll need a body shop. That's way past what I was imagining.

The garage lighting is hitting it in a way that makes it look way worse, but yeah, it’s pretty far gone

Of course I could always put the respray money towards a rack... out of sight, out of mind!

That's actually what I'm doing with my Sport. Clear on the hood is just starting to fade, so I'm having a detailer do a good cut and polish. On the roof it's past that point so I'm doing a grey vinyl wrap and tossing the rack on it.

Was it previously not garaged? Ours shows no sign of aging yet.

I feel like I see this to varying degrees on darker-colored vehicles... is it something to do with the amount of UV/heat absorption that cooks the paint and creates a breakdown of the clear?

 

I don't claim to understand paint application, simply an observation.  Of course, it's probably also far more visible on darker paint, so who knows.

We’ve had it 6 months now. Dealer did a real good wax job because I didn’t notice any issues when purchasing. Was a 1 owner vehicle with 37k miles from LA area. My guess is that it was not garaged by previous owner based on this condition.

Not going to lie, it’s driving me a bit crazy!

No idea, but it also has a lot to do with the quality the manufacturer puts into it. There are plenty of other brands, especially the Germans, where paint last quite a bit longer than the Rovers seem to do. And most of my many German cars have been dark colors.
