Due to emission regulations and the fear of global warming all cars companies have been force to switch to water based paints.

This is why we have Peeling paint.....it is really peeling clear coat.

They also further cut corners by clear coating. The color coat finish just has to be fair and the clear coat covers up all the sins.

I repainted the hood my wife's 2003 Aero with single stage acrylic enamel and no clear coat. With single stage you put on 3 good coats and let it dry for a week. Then you color sand and then compound the finshed results.

Nice thing about no clear coat is that you can maintain the paint with buffing and rubbing compound and wax

This is what they do on exotic restorations of cars like Porsche.

You DO NOT have to go down to bare metal. Just sand the clear coat off. Saab does use good undercoating system, so going down to the color coat is just fine.....actually preferable.
