Your clear coat is delaminating.

You might want to talk to a paint pro or two before you presume you can. The reasons that the paint delaminates may not be corrected by repainting.

The car needs a complete repaint. Not uncommon. The paint on these cars had problems.

It won't be so hard to fix the paint of this car. I am excited to see it clean again.
