Hey guys, got some clear peeling and slight paint fade in small spots on my boor sills in the xr6t. Its velocity blue colour.

Whats the best way to counter it? Should i coat it with clear then buff it?

Or sand it down to base?

Thanks in advance!

I dont know if it refers to the MK2 but there were a whole bunch of blue BA falcons recalled because of a defect in the batch of paint or clearcoat used . try looking it up . They were done under warranty
