    I have a noticeable amount of lacquer peel along the drivers side along the window line and along the top upwards facing edge of the wing. It seems to be getting steadily worse. Does anyone have any tips on how to sort it out by feathering it in / getting rid of the flakey edges without damaging/scratching the paint underneath? Im a novice so dont want to ruin it further or scratch it.

    Is it an easy job? or does anyone know roughly how much would it cost at a bodyshop to get it sorted?

    Thanks

    I have the same problem. Apparently, bird poo caused a small amount of lacquer peeling on my bonnet.

    You CAN'T feather it in if the laquers peeling as you will be right at the base coat on the peeled part - bodyshops are a whole topic in themselves and can be a nightmare if yoy don't pick wisely. Cost ain't the issue as you should realistically be quoted upto £100/panel max, excluding bonnett or other large panels.
