Often, the dilemma when contemplating a paintjob is whether to strip the old paint or just scuff it before spraying the new stuff. I did a combination of the two. This car was wearing its original paint, black with a white roof and white front doors, but the white paint was peeling off. I've heard from some cops that they have the same problem—the factory white is especially susceptible to sun damage. I scraped all the loose white paint off the roof with a razor blade.
