Time for more photos sorry it's been so long
This started to happen after 4 months after i 1st got it from the panelbeaters




The clear started to peel off and rust came back on the front windscreen pillar and water channels Crying or Very sad 
Then while they were doing a touch up on the righthand rear side they got the airgun to blow the dust off and this happen Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad Evil or Very Mad

The touchups were to be done as i still owed $2,000, I didn't know what to do as the 1st panelbeater soldout and the new owners said they ascept no reponsability for what has happened. Crying or Very sad 
I called the 1st beater and he was pissed off and so was I, if he dosen't come good with any money i didn't know what to do scrap it or repair it on my own but i was nearly out of money!!!!!!!
But he came good with $10,000 he had to sell a car to do it, so the sanding started to start again all the paint had to come off Evil or Very Mad

that's lucky your beater came up with the money, most would say piss off. Why did the clear start peeling off? At least the end result was worth it Dennis.
