    Default Clear coat peeling, paint shop recommendation?

    Hey guys, so the roof of my car is looking really bad and I would like to look into fixing it/re-painting it (typical civic issue). Anyone know of a good place that they can recommend? Thanks in advance

    If it's a civic it's probably not worth spending money on. I would probably just sand it and rent a spray gun to spray it myself to prevent any rusting, then just put some vinyl wrap on the roof to cover my shitty paint job.

    I guess it really depends on how much you want to spend. If your roof is bad, most shops will want to repaint the whole car because it will never match.

    Probably maaco would be the place to go for a "cheap" respray. But it will look like a cheap respray.

    Unless you have the time to prep it properly first on your own.
