  • Getting rid of orange peel... Detailers?

    No, not from the fruit but in paint work.

    My bonnet, doors and rear quaters seem to be all orangepeel-y. How would I get rid of this, and would it be covered by the Vauxhall paint warenty?

        it will be a poor quality finish from the factory unfortunately

        quite a few manufacturers suffer from this as the painting is done by machine.

        Only way to remove it is to fully wet send the entire car and polish it out. But it will be a long and expensive process unless you have the skill to do it yourself.

            As stated above this is generally due to the paint process from the paint factory, most mass produced cars suffer from this to some extent. Wet sanding is the only way to get rid off it but as stated above its a long and expensive process and very easy to get wrong and mess up if you di it yourself.

            However, i didnt know this could be classsed as a pain defect under warrenty. What did Vauxhall do then and how long does the paint warranty last for as mine suffers from this problem but have learnt to live with it.

              I was told by Vaux that the paint warranty is only for 1 year

                  Trust me ive seen better and alot worse than mine, its the normal unless you have a really expensive car. Even my folks £120,000 aston DB9 has it to a small extent but the paint process for that car is alot more detailed rather than being on a conveyer.
