New Paint Job?

My clear coat seems to be coming off in some spots. And in some spots it looks like white powder in the spaces between panels and stuff but when I tried to rub it off I noticed it was some clear. What should I do? I'm thinking about just taking it to a place and have them paint it but I'm worried they wouldn't be able to get in certain places like by the windshield where the weather stripping/ A pillar meet. Any experiences with a paint job? Also, it was painted once before because old owner got in a wreck.

id findout where it went previously and not take it back to there. I had my car painted last year and it was like 3-4G, but I had some custom stuff done. I would assume just paint would be anywhere from 500-5000 depending on who does it & what kinda quality job you want done.

Alright thanks man. The car is from Illinois and I'm here in Florida. It only has 21,000 miles on it so for the paint to be messing up pisses me off. But are you happy with your paint job? Like were they able to get in every crack and not miss anything?

I have yet to find something I couldn't live with! I just had my car painted the same color to save headache. I had the spoiler, faux gas cap, keyhole, & third brake light shaved. that was quite a little chunk. but so far man the place I had do mine did a pretty good job

Yeah, I'm hoping I can get a decent job done for about 3,500-4,000. And yeah, I am gonna get it painted the same to make it easier also. What did they do to yours just sand it, put primer, then paint and clear it?

Some people might not like this. But it you're short on money or can't afford a full new paint job. Try dipping it. Venomous and Slow4v both dipped their cars Ven still does. It's cheaper than a full job but it's matte and not gloss. You got any pics if your paint?

I was thinking about dipping it but idk. I would take some pics but I left my mustang with my mom while I'm away for college for a little. The best way I can describe is the clear coat is turning white like I left some wax on and then if I scrape it it comes off. Its happening where the plastic driver window molding almost touches the paint... Like if you looked at the driver side window, the upper right corner. If that makes any sense

I'm just worried that if I get it painted, that there might be some bridging or hard edges by the windows or an easy place for the paint to chip back.
