    Default Skoda Fabia Paint Marks

    Afternoon everyone,

    I've been asked to have a look at my friends Skoda Fabia, and there are some marks on the side which I have no idea how they have been made, and neither does he

    They are on the drivers front and rear door, and they look like cracks in the lacquer





    There are a lot more of them on the rear door.

    The car is a 2007 Skoda Fabia VRS, and as far as he knows, it's not had a respray or any other corrective work done on it.

    Has anyone seen anything like this before, or know what can be done to get rid of them?

    Thanks

    Like you say, they deffo look like cracks in the lacquer, i've never seen anything that bad before.
    I've no idea how to go about getting rid of them but have you tried posting up on detailing world?

    Thanks for the replies guys. I've advised him to take it back to Skoda, so we'll see what they have to say. It also looks like there is some contamination under the lacquer on the boot as well, near the number plate surround, and the bonnet has faded quite badly as well.
