    What's wrong with the paint on your car?

    I'm fine now. I went to the docs yesterday and got prescribed an antibiotic (Amoxicillin clavulanate) and I've had it before, but I can't handle it. Side effect is nausea, but this time it killed me. First time i've ever puked enough to literally empty my system lol.

    Let me see if I can get some pictures of it today that show up. I'll put up some comparison shots of before/after for ya.

    Either I got screwed by the paint company, or the place where I bought the paint. Its 2 coats primer, 3 coats gold base, 5 coats orange candy and 3 coats of clear. The paint is still as shiny as a new car, but the orange pigment is literally disappearing. All of the body panels facing upwards are fading back to peach/gold and all splotchy and stuff. Either the paint was shit, or the paint store did not tell me about any UV inhibitors or something. 600$ in paint ruined in just over a year or so. It was beautiful when it was fresh though.

    I can't go get any pics right now, nice layer of dew/frost on the car right now. That and the sun hasn't peeked over the trees yet.

    Thank you!

    80k ish.. i'm very anal about fit and finish Paint is spotless/flawless.. And a buffer has NEVER touched it.. All done carefully by hand.. It also rarely gets wet.. It was covered in dust from the shop. I had no choice but to wash it.

    Eh, im past beating people. Its just an eyesore now. The wheels i picked up at Carlisle looked nice when they were new too. But, the clearcoat is coming off in SHEETS now. I'd be fine if it were just bubbling where stonechips were, but its coming off in huge pieces (dollar bill-sized). This car has been a huge fail since the beginning.

    That's a shame, did they get all the clear off the orig paint? Old clear coat seems to have a way of rejecting new paint.

    Its the wheels that the clear is coming off. We did the paint ourselves. Nothin' wrong with the paint on the car other than the color fading fast.

    Honestly, I'd call the strip and see what they have to say about it. I would imagine any DOT helmet SHOULD be fine, but i don't know how they'll feel about a half helmet. Any time i've ever seen a video of someone drag racing, they have a fullface. I picked up a plainjane fullface at a local ATV/Dirtbike/Roadbike shop for like 60ish? I've worn the shit out of it too.

    I dunno. How fast you runnin? Usually (well in this end of PA) you have to be over a sertain time before they require a helmet..

    hmmm.. sounds similar to a problem im having... well, my clear coat isnt coming off yet, but its seperating from the paint. some kind of moisture is getting under it. i was able to squeeze water out the other day.
