    I'm not sure if there's anything you can do to stop it TBH. I can tell you the experience I had with my 2001 WS6 - I bought it new and always took care of it, had a custom cover for it, stored it indoors for all the winters etc. Then about 3 years ago I noticed the clear coat on the hood was blistering in several spots but only on the hood. It wasn't happening anywhere else which I found rather strange. I kept an eye on the 3 or 4 blisters which gradually increased in numbers and sizes. Finally they got so many and so bad and the stuff was just flaking off in huge chunks. Took it to a friend who works at a dealer's body shop and they basically took the hood off, stripped everything off the top and re-painted it. He was even worried about the new vs old paint and color matching but it turned out perfect.

    So I hope this is relegated to just your hatch and just that section can be easily taken care of without putting the whole car through hell.
    Good luck.

    It's gonna spread no matter what. If you really love the car you're gonna have to repaint it in the effected areas.
