Has anyone had problems with the Matt lacquer on streamline carbon items? Gave the car a good clean and polish this morning and noticed that the lacquer on my Matt front splitter has gone milky and is peeling off in one place. Not impressed as I only put it on for ford fair last year!!

I have some carbon vents from them and mine are looking in a pretty poor state with a bit of peeling and fading. Admittedly they've been on the car for years but I would've thought they'd hold up better than this. I'm probably gonna bin them and put my originals back on

I've had carbon items go milky before, it's like it's been 'sweating under the lacquer'.

This wasn't Streamline but I wasn't impressed!

Phone him direct. I wouldn't bother with email.

Looks like a stone chip caused it n it's flared right up

My matt lacquer vents have gone the same after a stone chip took a big chunk out.

So once I get paid, I'm sending both vents back to have the chip repairs and relacquered in gloss
