When your so PI55ED !!

Post  Giobus on Mon Jun 10, 2013 8:47 pm

Hi All,

Have you ever been in a position when your so PI55ED that you can't get a word out Twisted Evil Evil or Very Mad Embarassed Evil or Very Mad Twisted Evil

After a lovely UK holiday, this weekend l went to get BING out of wraps to prepare her for this weekends Breakfast Gathering.

I took the cover off, prepared to give her a wash & What a Face there were all small 'bubbles' in the paint.


With 5 weeks of keeping her wrapped up the' heating/ cooling & moisture' 'FRUITED' the paint.

All l could do was walk away, l didn't know what to say or do, the inside of my sank so deep l felt empty Sad Sad

I dropped down & just stared at her >> a year of burning midnight oil weeknights & weekends building her, an a amazing summer cruising around the state getting 'Thumbs Up' were every you went - then this.

Why, was she outside under wraps???? while Shaun had his LoLux in the garage getting it final paint & engine fitment.

Where to now !! More work, More money and the Splitty gets pushed further behind & l can't drive BING.

Hey Gio, things could be a lot worse, your car could have been damaged in a collision and/or you could have been hurt.

Cars can be fixed with relative ease, people are a little harder to mend.

Likewise, your experience should serve as a warning to all others who need to store their rides outside and want to make it as weatherproof as possible.

Rule one, if you need to cover the car NEVER, repeat NEVER use plastic or any material that does not breath.

The upside, is that all the lessons you learned first time around will be put to good use and the next paint-job will turn out even better.

I'm not sure if they'll cover it, but have you contacted your insurer?

Gio, I feel your pain.

Have had the same problem with another car I own from a previous life.
When I got the Thunderbird, I put the Bugeye Sprite under wraps, thinking I was doing the right thing.
Approx 3 months later when took the covers off, BUBBLES !!!!
Man I havent even thought of repairing yet to depressed.
So I guess we are in the same boat.
If you need a hand to rub back or just someone to drink lots of beer with, only to pleased to help.

Thanks for your thoughts Smile

Yes it's only a car and no one was hurt.

You think your doing the right thing by protecting her - but fresh acrylic paint needs to mature a bit more than 12 months to toughen up !!

So by keep it sealed up stopped the paint breathing and the vapors escaping, thus they formed just under the top coat.

Well, this has just opened it up the a new paint job >> Colour, Design, Combo, Custom cheers

>>> Decisions, decisions ????
