When your paint starts to crack you have to act as fast as possible to identify the issue and get it resolved. Without taking the proper steps in replacing your paint and sealing it off from cracking again, you could be looking at costly consequences such as the formation of rust and additional cracking.
Cracked paint occurs due to an undercoat that is too thick, or a defective topcoat film that has let the elements erode at the paint underneath. Cracked paint, which can also be referred to as checking, crow’s feet, or crazing, can also occur when you get a paintjob done by an amateur that uses forced air to dry the undercoat.
Unfortunately, when your paint starts to crack the only solution is to remove your paint’s film, and repaint, and then refinish. If you’re dealing with a painting problem due to manufacturing, you may be looking at having to repaint your whole car. But most of the time cracked paint occurs only on one section of your car, such as a fender, or a hood, and is relatively easy to get fixed as opposed to an entire car.
At The Best Detail we can completely remove damaged and cracked paint, and make sure that your new paint job is flawless.
Etching Due to Chemicals or Cleaning Products
Car paint can become etched for a variety of reasons ranging from acid rain, to using incorrect cleaning products. Most of the time we deal with etching issues, it’s due to previous cleaning steps carried out through a DIY project or by a non-experienced detailer.
Luckily, etching can be fixed most of the time through a thorough car wash. Cleaning your car’s exterior with hot water and a soap mixture, or baking soda with water, then rinsing and drying it can get the job done.
But for etching issues that are more severe, we recommended utilizing the help of a professional that can clean your car with the right solutions and tools. Here at The Best Detail, we are stocked with all of the cleaning solutions and techniques necessary for delivering a perfect paint repair every time!

Here at The Best Detail, we specialize in dealing with these issues, and many other paint complications such as fish eyes, orange peel, paint color matching, paint runs and sags, scratches, and dust contamination.
