    Wasn't sure exactly where to put this. Simply, the paint on my new project Miata is fooked. The clearcoat is coming off in chunks, and it's crap underneath. I wanna sand it down and primer it black, then rock it like that til I come up with a good paint job (and the money for it).

    Suggestions? What types of paints, etc would be helpful, cuz I dunno shite aboot shite on automotive paints.

    I'd post a picture, but it's really embarrassing.

    Post a pic, I believe I know what your talking about though....ummm if I were you I would use some sort of a dupli color paint and since its just a temporary basically whatever goes job I would just go buy it at walmart, at my local walmart they have a large paint section, or you could go to an auto part store.

    However if your looking at just using regular primer I dont know how many different kinds there are....but you can get different colors.

    I'll get one this weekend, gotta head to work in a few...

    But I'm debating a matte-black final finish with OEM red racing stripes. Time to get out the Photochop. :run:

    Not as bad as I thought, are you positive the clearcoat is coming off or do you just need to run a nice buffer on it?

    Eary 911 Porsches are tiny cars like miatas and those guys strip them in a full day using just a razor blade on a blade handle. Then you can primer it. I would suggest that over sanding. No need for expensive chemicals and all you will have to do with the plastic bumpers is scuff them and they will paint very easily.
