I was speaking about reclearing over old clear. Having a whole vehicle just recleared is not recommended, again because of adhesion issues. New paint allows the new clear to bond. Even during a repair, the entire panel is recleared because the repainted and recleared spot will leave an edge; even though the "edge" is only mils in thickness. Over time this may start to lift. Even doing a whole panel over time it will start to lift as you just cannot achieve the same level of bonding by just scratching/sanding the surface vs a chemical bond that can be achieved clearing over fresh paint.Roger said:but you wouldent bet putting clear coat on old paint you would be putting new clear coat on old clear coat

i had my car blended in two occasions, first in the rear panel.. when i had that paneled repaired they just painted that spot only vs. painting the roof that connects to the rear panel and it still looks okay after 5 years.
second time is in the front panel when they painted my hood. the entire panel was sanded down then cleared with the hood, and that looks pretty good.
