Paint Question

I have a question for anyone that knows whats going on. the front and rear of my car has been painted because i have changed it. What i am noticing is that the paint chips off in large pieces. almost like pealing. I have seen the paint chip here and there bit not like this. I mean chunks of paint is simply pealing off. are the shops doing bad work? is there a particular kind of paint/primer they should use? i would like some assistance with this because this will be the second time i paint them using two different shops. fascias are after market polyurethane.

A very specific primer is required for poly and the surface has to be prepped properly for the primer. Look at your "peeling paint". Are both sides cool vanila or just the top side?
Both sides the same color = wrong primer for the paint
Different colors = wrong primer for the poly or bad surface prep.

Thanks for the response. Everything is cool vanila nice matches. What I can tell you is that at different peeling locations you see grey and other areas black underneath the paint. Not sure what that means. But the peeling is in large chuncks. Not like rock chips.

Looks like the primer wasn't prepped before the finish coat. I hope the whole car's not like that because if it is, the paint will have to be stripped down to the primer coatbefore painting again.

Re: Paint Question

Did you replace the bumpers with used ones from a bright silver 300, because that primer looks awful shinny.

Many kits "claim" to be paint ready but they are not. They still still need to be properly sanded and primed prior to paint. A fex additive in the paint will also make the bumpers more durable. The only way to fix yours is to respray the bumpers by an experienced paint and body shop.
