Hi there,

I've got some paintwork degrading on my 92 EB and was
wondering if anybody knows some solutions to help stop the
situation getting worse, as opposed to a re-spray.

Thanks guys.

the way i see it your choices are: respray, change doors entirely, duct tape!

respray easy way out is to paint just to the feature line or crease and blend it in

Only real way is to strip the whole door and repaint it otherwise it will just keep on peelin.
