I got paint under my 1992 318is, but i got a metal section, which i had to paint, on one strip near the wheel. So its weird O.o

I've heard plenty of times that clearcoat is recommended to restore a nice shine to the newly exposed paint on the skirts. Be sure to wash all the castrol off first though.
Uhm...one question; what is the color and year of your car?
Because a few of us in the E36 forum tried the same technique with the paper towels but some, like me, found that they were sections where they were NO paint at all under the grey...just the base metal of the car frame.
Someone has a theory that it depends on the year and the color of the car. It could be that later 1995-1996 E36 cars do not have paint under the grey and earlier 1992-1994 E36 cars have paint-vice versa
Post pictures if you have....
