The peeling occurs in the clear coat layer, exposing the base coat to the sunlight and fading the color to white. The affected panel(s) will require prepping and repainting to address this condition. The paint repair may need to be sublet to a body shop. Follow the Repair Procedure in bulletin T-SB-004-20 to address this condition.
