The clearcoat on the rear bumper on my 98 SLS is beginning to peel. Is there any way to stop it from spreading?

Depends on how good you want it to look. If it isn't real important, just tape off the area, and spray a few thin coats of clear on it. If it is important, you need to strip the bumper, and get it repainted. A repaint will cost about $300.00, without R&R. The patch job will cost as little as $5.00. It all comes down to final look.

I repainted my front bumper on my black 98 sls with Krylon (Fusion for plastic). I thought my bumper came out very good using a rattle can. I don't think they make a clear coat Fusion, but check it out at your local Hardware, Home Depot. I block sanded with 600 wet-Dry sand. I painted the bumper in mid summer and still looks good. Dan
