well i painted this car in 95 . centari over old lacquer . these were old crows feet that popped up over time. about 10 years ago i repainted the roof to repair some hell dents . this area of the cowl was taken to metal with 80 grit. this is the metal memory we have talked about with tape stripes . these were the exact ones i got rid of then. crazy i know but in my old desktop are some pics of it stripped.
car still looks great . it's changed hands so the new owner wants it flamed.
Having heard of stripes that had been removed eventually bleeding thru new paint, is this similar to that? I had it happen to me on a early Bronco door that had been taken to metal.
Wasn't sure what caused it so it was taken down to bare metal again. Really weird stuff. Hasn't come back, so far.
Nice car. I guess the stripes would explain why only the paint on the door cracked. We picked the best doors from about 5 or 6 and one of them had stripes on it. I don't remember if we used that particular door or not, but that would be a good explanation of why it happened.
Stripe memory can be funny. Had a black truck tailgate years ago repainted by previous owner. Letters would ghost through the paint saying::: be reasonable do it my way. My co-workers at the time thought I intentionally lettered it. I could lightly color sand & buff & they'd be gone,,,,,, for a little while.
I'm sure it was just sticker glue reside that was never properly removed. Later on a thorough sanding & repainting starting with epoxy did get rid of it.
