#1 Bubbling paint

Post by Gnickgsmith » Sat Jan 12, 2019 5:30 pm

Hi all,
My car is going to be painted shortly after a complete soda blast strip, and I have read somewhere that the engine heat can react with certain types of undercoat which ultimately causes the paint on the bonnet to bubble, particularly around the vents.
The paint on my car was affected like this before it was stripped, and I want to avoid the same issue.
Does anyone have a clue what I am talking about or have I dreamt this?
