Clear Coat peeling

I just screwed up my paint somehow and the clear coat is peeling. is there a way to fix this without painthing the whole trunk? I just put some masking tape to hold the perf spoiler and left it overnight, it rained and now the paint is fucked up.

seems like its just glue residue? i believe some clay bar action will fix it or take it to a detailer to have them buff it out?

not sure where u are located so i cant really advise u on who to contact

Yea I don't see how masking tape could destroy the clear coat.

Yeah it's fucked. The lid has probably been re sprayed and the clear is lifting off the base coat. No remedy other than painting.

If it's a respray anything is possible, I was assuming factory paint when I made my statement.

That's clear coat failure. The only proper way to fix it is to respray the panel completely.

if it is on top of the paint, you can try goo off, or lacquer thinner on a rag and rub it on there, it wont hurt catalyzed paint. Brake or carburetor cleaner would work too sprayed on a microfiber towel and rubbed. That's only if it is glue residue and not clear coat failure.

Trunk respray
You might want to take a look at the hood and roof. If the trunk had oem paint and it failed, the other areas might also be starting to fail.

you can just respray the top of the trunk if you have a solid breaking point all the way across such as a spoiler. That is kind of a half ass way of doing it though plus it will eventually start delaminating across the back in due time. The proper way is to strip and spray the whole lid. I would probably use this as justification to get your csl lid.

Have the clear coat peel on the roof rack "strip". It's bubbling in a small section. Dealership would not cover it and now I'm out of warranty. I think I'll use touch up paint and wetsand it to smooth it out. To OP I don't see a way to fix it until some detailing members have some suggestions to make it less noticeable.
