Clearcoat repairs

I am considering buying a trailer who's only blemish is a small patch of peeled clearcoat on front just above numbers.

Is there some ot of repair for this such as a acrylic spray or something.Hate to just let it get worse.

re Clear Acrylic Spray 28174W

Thanks Dan.

Has anyone used this stuff successfully?

Do you just spray over the peeled areas or is some sort of prep needed?

Like to hear from those that have used it.

Thanx

We have always used a lacquer thinner "very sparingly" on the spot we wanted to spray. Mostly, we tried to bevel or layer from the flaked or pealed spot. Then we used a tack cloth then let it dry. Then we would spray the place you want protect.

If you were using this on a unit that had the white flakes all away around the top, you would still be able to see the white flakes up close. If you are standing 15 ft or farther, you won't be able to see the flakes ( White spots).

Do keep in mnd, this is just a economical way to make your unit look a little better. If you want it blemish free, you need to have it stripped and recoated.

I have a very small scratch - like a ding from a rock that I want to keep sealed to prevent any more problems. I've kept wax on it but is there something to use like you use on a car to touch up paint? Or do I buy the spray and spray a puddle of it on a piece of scrap and use a small brush from there?

I would think both would work.
