Default Bleed through

So I got my 69 C3 back from the painter about three to four years ago we replaced the whole front clip and they did a lot of body prep work the car is painted 69 white.

Noticed a slight discoloration last year but I was not sure but I just washed her last night and the yellow showing through the white was unmistakeable. Best I can figure is that it was a bad prep job.

Question is where do I go from here, can it be repainted over the white again or will the yellow just bleed through the new coat?

It depends on what they applied on the body.

I know of what you are referring to and that is telling me that from what I remember...it can be the hardener they used in any body fillers in that area where you have the bleeding effect.

It would be great to have photos of when it was in process or EXACTLY what they did and the steps of what they applied on the body.

I know this had happened to me about 30 years ago when was still shooting lacquer and I had toe use the PPG DP40 to spray on it to stop it.

DO not need a photo of how it looks currently.

Well aware of what you are seeing.

AS like what 'porchdog' had mentioned. more than likely the failure to not use a sealer. Red hardener used in the body filler that time can cause this bleed through if it is not sealed.

So...it seems it will need to have a sealer applied in it and painted again.

So I stopped by the shop that did the paint not one person works there that worked on my car and the Mechanic that was there told me he was about to quit. I left a message for the owner and waiting for her call.

What I am expecting is no satisfaction from this person but I need to run through the steps and give her a chance.

I also went by another shop to get a quote they want to take the car down to the fiberglass and repaint from there, Not sure why my understanding is if the car is sanded down a little sealed and then re-painted it should be good to go but they said I might still get bleed through.
