Paint & oxidisation spot removal & prevention

Hi all,

Attached are pictures of (oddly symmetrical) issues with the body paint on my Jeep. In the last year or so these have appeared and are steadily affecting the appearance of my paintwork and I wondered if anybody had a case of this in the past?

I obviously want to strip or repair the bubbled / oxidised areas and protect the rest of the body paint to avoid it happening elsewhere.

If it helps the paintwork is 20 years old on a '97 Wrangler.

Any suggestions for a repair method on this would be great, never met this kind of paint issue before!


Thanks

That looks to be the typical tj front fend rust. They start rusting from the underside of the fender in the wheel well. Your best bet is to cut the rust out and weld new metal in, or buy some new fenders.

Hi Radrick thanks for that, sounds like it isn't going to be an easy fix but I'll get to work on it, and on finding some paint too! ?
