I managed to rescue mine, it was on a Moroccan sand coloured VS (that goldy/bronze colour).

It got so bad that the clear coat used to come off in sheets when it was at the car wash. Had a cash job done where they feathered off the clear without removing the windscreens and resprayed the roof and pillars and also the boot lid. $500 cash from memory. Paint fade was minimal so it came out looking pretty good.



may go speak to a shop about this then. their is no paint fade so far, so it could be salvageable. if i can get the roof done well, then the rest of the panels im not too fussed about, as they can always be taken off and painted seperately. if not, ill save for a decent respray

you will have to paint the bascoat again

when you feather out the clear you will go through the basecoat
the clear could eventually shrinking back and allowing you to see the area where it was peeled before

best bet is do it properly,
sand all back, prime and then get it painted

being a vs you would want to paint the whole roof
avoid blends half way through any panel,
after a year they will start to dull at the blend and go creamy like plastic headlights do

cash wise my mate just offered a fellow member whoms vr roof is flaking $450
full roof primed , painted, booth time, materials etc
