Looking for some how to videos on how to repair and restore your clear coat. My clear coat is cracking and peeling all over the boat and I've got some deep cracks down into the sparkled paint that need to be touched up. Having a hard time finding a how to video showing how to repair it.

Yeah if some knothead shot it with auto clear you’re just screwed.
Sorry.
If you just have to keep it then the only true fix is to sand all that clear junk off and have it done with gel coat. Not easy fun or cheap.

This is for the hundred lurkers who might be thinking about restoring their old tub with auto paint.

Personally, I would love to spend a couple of days fishing with him, just in hopes that some of his knowledge would rub off on me..
