As far as paint, it may just be the clearcoat. I am starting to lose my clearcoat, too on the roof, a little on the trunk, and alot on the back bumper. I am hoping to get afresh clearcoat by spring if everything works out.

Also, I sent you a PM (Private Message) with some information.

Hi there newbie...

Sounds like you are in good hands ... beware of the girly colored car.

And let'* get to modding that car.

Hope it is a real one. Could be a great long term keeper.

Welcome to the club! Nice rare car you got there

I'm guessing this clearcoat problem is due to the hot dry sun in AZ? Very nice place to live, but I bet it takes a toll on a paint job! lol
