Welcome to the vette world!

Here is a vette "bible rule"
Factory paint and one repaint.
After that it is strip for any further painting.

First your vette came with factory lacquer witch is a problem to Begin with. The bubbling is a cause of one of two things solvent or too much paint that cannot keep up with the expansion and contraction and the body flex.

Strip it at this point no matter what the cause and first thing is get a coat or two of epoxy on the raw glass than refinish using
2k primers and base clear.

There is no other option, sad to say.

Hey Studog,

I am working on a 69 Vette also.
Check out my gallery.
Also check out the thread I started a couple of weeks ago called. "Primer Surfacer Help for Corvette" (http://www.hotrodders.com/t57360.html) There's a lot of valuable information in there.
Good luck and post some pics!

Roger
