Any way to stop paint bubbles from spreading?

There was a paint bubble on the fender of my Sahara when I bought it. It started spreading and I picked it off hoping it would help, but it seems to keep going. Is there any way to prevent it from peeling further?

Yup....just stop picking at it! but no. Looks like someone painted the flare and your having an adhesion problem now. Nothimg you can do but hope you can get it off and repaint it.

Agree. Remember all the gm cars in the 80's? Once it starts it keps going until you sand it all off.

Not that one. Its been painted and poorly prepped. It will continue. Lets just hope they didnt paint the flares on the jeep.

You can use a sponge brush and make sure you put in on in thin coats.If you use a brush,use a natural bristle brush and thin the poly with thinner.Check where you buy the poly and they can tell you how much to thin it and what type of thinner to use.Also you need to lightly sand between each coat or you can use 3/0 steelwool.If the poly is water base,DO NOT use steelwool.I would recommend MIN/WAX.You can get it clear or with a stain in it.Poly should be put on in thin coats and not one thick coat.The more thin coats you put on ,the more it will shine.Thick coats will cause runs.

Huh? Poly, sponge, brush, steelwool, minwax, stain? Its a plastic wheel flare for a jeep wrangler which somebody didnt prep at all before painting or the paint underneath wouldnt still be shiny and pealing. This isnt a cabinet or dresser or even a table. R u sure u posted on the right forums? Really?

I would suggest grabbing a can of KleanStrip Peeler spray the flare and then repaint. Peeler is what the warranty dealerships used for the Dodges and GM cars that had all the de-lamination problems in the 80s and 90s.

Otherwise you can see how far it'll go before it has adhesion and start there. But you could easily end up at a repair area and have to re-do the whole flare. Cheapest and easiest would be to live with it until you can get it re shot and done right.
