Default Paint chipping!


This is from my 04 350z Roadster, is this a normal occurrence with the 350z paint? Anyone experience the same kind of problem and did u end up painting your whole car? Thanks

That's not normal paint deterioration- your ZR took a hit from some kind of debris. Where is the car stored?

Looks like possibly a filler was used....any wrecks or repaint on the car that you know of?

Iím from NY and the car is mostly in the driveway not in any garage or cover. Car is clean no hits. The cars clear coat is also pealing!

Any car left out in the sun/weather will suffer from paint fading and clearcoat deterioration. I also have redline (AX6) paint like yours and have no peeling after 16 years of ownership (pre-order '03 track model).
