Welcome fellow G3er. Youll have to sand the clear coat off along with all the rest of the paint down. These guys here are experts at this, theyll point you in the right direction.

Funny you should post this, I just got a new house with a 2 car garage. My first project is putting black and white commercial grade vinyl flooring down. My second project is tackling my 73. Click on my username and check out my history of posts youll find the work i did on my 74 el camino a while back.

For the roof glue, I finally got mine off with oven cleaner. I let it sit a couple of hours then went at it with a scraper. This worked, but also took some paint off which I was trying avoid.

I wonder if one of those eraser wheels for removing molding adhesive would work?

I would sand the peeling clear coat with 80 grit, then prime and sand starting with 220 then work your way up to 320 priming between sandings. I would sand the top glue off with 80 also and use the same procedure.

If you chemical strip it will take it to the metal, then you will have to use etching primer to etch the metal before you use a regular primer, and chemical striping is a nasty , messy, smelly job, then what paint does not come off with striper will have to be sanded,the striper will cause nasty burn's on your skin,sanding and priming is much cleaner and safer than chemical striper,I've been that route on the top of my fastback many year's ago, it was a very messy dirty job ,not to mention how bad it will burn your skin, striper is nasty stuff!! just my opion though, hope it help's, glad to try to help Very Happy

I know what you mean, I call my mustang's paint job a 1 footer, I painted it about 10 year's ago base coat clear coat. It's a daily driver,not a show car by any mean's. It has some rock chip's , a few small scratch's,but look's great from about a foot away!!
