Complete Paint Job to Fix Delaminating Paint & Microchecking

2008 Honda Civic Coupe with horrible case of sunburn (delaminating or peeling paint)

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2008 Honda Civic Coupe. The original paint was peeling off in chunks. It also had microchecking, something that can happen to any car but we see more often on certain years of Hondas & Acuras. Microchecking looks a bit like cracked ice. It usually occurs when the primer under the paint is failing. Microchecking can allow water to penetrate to the metal and cause rust.

We sanded off the delaminating paint and repaired a quarter panel. We stripped the panels with microchecking down to bare metal. Then we applied a coat of primer-sealer and painted the entire car in the original Nighthawk Black Pearl using single-stage Enamel+UV Protection paint.
