Question Paint

Has anyone else had problems with their clearcoat peeling? Also does anyone know how much a decent paint job would cost?

Mine is starting to peel on the roof. It's gradually gotten worse and it's mostly garaged. I've tried waxing the hell out of it to no avail. A real, good paint job will probably run over 1k. Hopefully Agita can chime in with how much he paid.

But Agita had a color change, that's a lot more work....
