Detailing your car vs respraying

I received another distress call from my Mechanic

as his car cant be sold as the paint work on the roof is 'dead' aka heavily severely oxidizes, the buyer refute the buy till this is resprayed. He actually contacted the body shop, last week when i was drop by his place, i suggest
'why not let me to resurrect it'

this was the 5th ride, after we detail 4 full size passenger van.......in 4 hours

''Dead paint'' aka ''heavily severely oxidizes''

thanks God all of my fellow fanatics detail was there side by side to goes thru this togather
