billet pieces peeling

my jeep has all red pieces from billet technologies under the hood. on some of the fluid caps, the clear finish is coming off. is there a way to re-clear these. i dont want to feather the edge with sand paper and risk rubbing of the anodizing. will it look ok to just throw a couple more heavy coats of auto clear over it and buff?

Re: billet pieces peeling

I'd contact billet......for the prices of their stuff that shouldn't be happening. I've had no problems with my underhood kit to date.

billet pieces peeling

Are you hitting it with any sort of cleaning chemicals ? That might be damaging the Billet gear ?

Re: billet pieces peeling

I agree with the above statement. If your using chemicals to clean them, then I could see them prematurely peeling. But Iv had my red stuff on for over a year with not a single issue. Once a week or every other week I apply a little bit of WD40 to the billet stuff as they recommend, nothing else.

Re: billet pieces peeling

thanks for the info guys.

i bought the jeep used with all the stuff on it, so i would not expect the company to replace them since i did not pay for them myself nor can i guarantee that they were cared for as per recommendations. i am overseas at the moment, but will be putting it in a local car show when i get home next month. the whole thing is immaculate except for a couple of the caps. i cannot believe how many thumbs up i get on the road. also people seem to like to follow me into parking lots and ask about it when i go to the store.
