I have a 1990 Geo Tracker that has the infamous GM paint job from the late 80’s/early 90’s. The clear coat is peeling and I am looking for guidance on the proper repair. I am doing this project on a tight budget so taking it to a body shop is not an option. Here are my questions.
What is the best way to prep the the surface?
Do I need to to strip it to the bare metal?
What type of primer do I use, sealer or self-etching?
I have done all the mechanics myself and am looking to try my hand at painting. The body is straight with a little surface rust. Any assistance would be most welcome.
