I was wondering if your paint job is messed up, like clear coat/ paint peeling off. i only ask because my paint job is one of the few flawless <aside from a couple dings, and a bite that a paseo took out of it> and could easily be waxed up to a mirror like finish. am i one of the few with this good of a paint job? if so, kinda sad because the car is rotting away in my back yard.

this is mainly for the pre 1996 guys.

Yeah... back bumper on mine is almost all peeled off. On the white one that is. Ofcourse, being hit there could have something to do with it. the rest of the car is flawless, save for 4 parkinglot dents, which can be easily pulled. The red one is exempt for rust. The Lumina on the other hand is missing some Dr fender and roof paint, both from bad paintwork previously.

ROYALLY MESSED UP.

I think I should have the title for worst paint job on BC. My Bonne was parked for 4 years with no care. It soaked up the intense prairie sun all summer, and snow was piled on it all through the harsh winter.

This is when I first got it almost a year ago:





Roof is the same as the hood, rust on the sides. The trunk has NO clearcoat left, its down to primer. Click the link in my sig for the full run-down. Can anyone top that?

I got the typical GM flakey paint. Luckily, though, it'* mostly contained under the hood on the front fenders. A little bit shows, but not too bad...

Dang, no pics of it.....
