A few years ago i bought a car from a salvage yard, but unfortunately the roof had been splattered by an exploding car battery. I tried rubbing the surface as repainting, but it keeps eating through the paint. What i would like to know is there any product that i can use, once i've rubbed all the paint off again, to stop this happening again.
I was thinking of possibly a zinc paint coating - but dont want to end up with it happening again if that wouldn't work.

Any helpful suggestions would be greatfully received.

If there is such a thing as an acid resistant paint, that might be your solution (provided it mean for cars).

Hey, seperate question for late nineties year Civic owners. Why are all the ones in dark green losing their paint jobs on the top? Did Honda choose a really crappy paint for this?

Something alkali will neutralise the acid surely?
