2000 Toyota Camry Paint Has Oxidation Problem

Reader Question

I have a 2000 Camry that I just purchased. It is in great shape except I noticed on certain spots on the roof the paint is worn thin. I need a product that will restore & protect the paint.

What do you recommend? I prefer not to buy a boatload of products, if fewer can do the job.



Hey John,

That is really not in my department of expertise. I would highly recommend you take the vehicle to a reputable body shop or a reputable professional detail shop and get them to look at this and give their opinion.

You don’t want to put on the wrong product and make things worse. Usually, if the clear coat protective finish has been compromised there is not much that can be done except repaint.
