    Default Help please! What is this?

    Hello everyone

    I don't really know a lot about paint and rust, hoping I can get some advice

    Hoping someone can tell me exactly what this is and how hard it would be to repair, how much it might cost in a bodyshop and how much of it I might be able to do myself



    It's on the roof of an EK that I'm interested in buying and that's the only picture I have

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Cheers

    Hi mate,

    Looking at the photo, it's difficult to tell. I've seen that type of reaction (bubbling like that) from paint stripper or contamination prior to paint being applied onto panels. Looks like it's been scratched with something - as if it's been keyed.

    Doesn't look like a standard Honda colour though; has the previous owner had it repaired before/resprayed?
