2006 Winnie Aspect Paint Degradation
« on: June 26, 2020, 01:31:13 PM »
I have a nice condition 2006 WInnie aspect that has some areas in the dark brown paint where the paint has gotten rough to the touch and the color has become mottled (perhaps the primer is peeking thru?)

Rubbing compound did nothing to clean up the look so I'm assuming it's not a oxidation issue.  The lighter area have brightened up nicely with rubbing compound and a wax job.

Looking for advice on options to restore the look.  Thanks to anyone taking the time to offer advice.

That's probably the clear coat degrading from UV exposure. If it's a fairly small area you can wet sand it and use a rattle can of one part clear coat with decent results.

I have an 05 Aspect 23D with the same exact problem and would be curious as to the outcome if you have done it yet to your 06... I'm tempted to have all those outdated turn of the century graphics removed and possibly have it repainted with a more contemporary look.

I haven't done anything yet.  I'm still searching for the paint spec as it appears only repainting will address the issue. 

My plan would be to find a small can of the exact paint and then test to see how close it matches the existing paint which is probably (but not certainly) faded after 15 years.  If fading is an issue then the only approach is to repaint the entire panel.

The idea of repainting the entire coach will work of course but it would be spendy.

The paint on our Horizon is Sherwin Williams, the minimum I could buy was a quart and it was expensive as I recall  - something like $80. I found out our local SW dealer doesn't carry auto paint, you have to buy from a specialist SW paint shop. CDI used a very high quality paint for at least the Horizon/Vectra.

I recently had some paint touch-up work done at CDI on my Meridian. Good job, quite reasonable price compared to Phoenix, AZ estimates, and gave me an excuse to take a trip.  ;) Very satisfied with the experience.  :))
