Unhappy

I have a 1988 GT which has been painted once before from what i can tell(still stock colour). I am starting to see some paint flaking off the ground effects of the car. I'm only 18, so i can't really aford to take it to a body shop and have it all done. Any help/sites/comments/tips that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated

Get a part time job at a body shop. Even if it`s for less than min. wage. Even volunteer. That way you`ll learn how to prep you car for paint, for free cause you`ll do it. Then you can get it sprayed for cost, or maybe even just materials if you become friends with the paint guy. You`ll be getting experience and money at the same time.

my 88 gt is doing the same thing after getting new rear ground effects after an accident. Not enough flex agent in the paint i am told. The local auto parts/paint supply told me no can stuff will match for touch up repair. anybody out there done anything to touch this up? it has to be pretty common.

I would say it is quite common. There is also a problem with the paint itself flaking off the body, not just the cladding. Too bad Ford couldnt have at least molded it in color, like gray, or something more neutral Not too mant flat yellow stangs around huh? I seen a few fox bodys this weekend with the same yellowing....Some believe it is sun/wind damage on the ground effects issue, COBRA-
