Yes its sad. But no worries on my side. My car is an 08' and its due for fresh paint. I called the shop and told him just do a total respray of the entire car. I want thick layers of clear. Should last me a good 4 yrs or so.

I just want to warn others to watch your use of strong polish compounds or wet sanding.
Thick layers of clear coat should last you way more than four years.
Shouldn't it? :/
