    Default Clear Coat Peeling- help!


    I have an 04 red SVT cobra and the clear coat is peeling and bubbling. I can see that this will get really bad if I don't find some sort of band-aid for the situation. I cannot afford a paint job now. The thought of that beautiful beast with the paint all peeled off really breaks my heart. I'm going to try to save up for a car cover. My questions are below:

    Does anyone have any experience with this?
    Is there anything I can do to prevent the peeling from getting worse?
    Are there any particular products that I can use?
    What steps can I take to help maintain the current paint without hurting the affected areas?

    Also does anyone know of an affordable place in Texas that does good mustang paint jobs (for when I get a better job)?

    Any help/advice is much appreciated.

    Thank you!

    does the car stay parked outside? do you do a lot of polishing, sealing, and waxing?

    Yes, it stays outside- no other option. I'd like to purchase a car cover soon. I've never polished or sealed, but I do wax.

    I washed and waxed this weekend and that made me feel better about it. I think for now, I need to purchase a cover and continue to wax frequently. Any other ideas?
