'03 Silver Civic EX Paint Problem    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-25-2004 11:14

Hey all...

I was wondering if anyone else had experienced paint problems on the model year Civic listed above or other years. On the roof - rear passenger side - my paint appears to be crackling. At first, I thought that it could be something that had gotten on the car because the largest area is a peculiar shape. However, after trying to get it off, nothing has worked and the area doesn't appear to be getting any better. In fact, additional areas are starting to appear. Please let me know if anyone else has had a problem. The car goes in for it's 20k service when I get back from Thanksgiving, so I'll definitely have it checked out then. Just wanted to know if I need to be expecting to get the roof repainted, which will really diminish Honda's appeal to me and make me think twice about an upgrade in a year or so...

I also have a silver 03 civic Ex, but i never experienced any problems with the paint. Could be just bad luck. I would clay it and wax it and then as a last resort paint it if nothing else works.

Thanks for the advice...I'm not the familiar with the use of clay. Is there a particular type that you recommend, place where I may find it, procedure for using it? I've read that it's supposed to remove paint blemishes if they are removable (i.e. tar, bugs, etc.) so I'm open to the use of it. Any help would be appreciated...thanks.

If it is a problem with the paint, then it should be covered by warranty.

I recommend Mothers clay bar. It comes in an all in one box complete with wax and detailer.
to use it just spray (Quick detailer) onto the effected area and rub the clay over it till all that stuff comes out.
