    If the clearcoat has gone then its got to be a respray of some kind I would have thought Bob

    Eggs seem to be able to do this somehow. Anyone know why?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Just had a chat with her and she reckons it must have been done on saturday evening.
    So in two days it has eaten straight through the top coat and begun attacking the colour coat the only stuff worse than this has got to be either acid or paint stripper .
    I am kind of glad that i dont eat eggs, imagine what its doing to your stomach

    OMG Never knew that about eggs. Looks like your only solution is to shell out on a respray

    Ok Ok I'm sorry

    Seriously though, that is unbelievable. Hope you find a solution mate
