Paint Problems

I have looked in as many knowledge and tech bases as I could and could not find information on why the paint is lifting off my car. It is a 1980 Vette. It started with a couple of bubbles on the nose and front fenders. Now there are numerous places and I am going to have the car repainted. I was told by a local shop that they may return after the car is repainted because it could be a problem with the fiberglass. I am not sure I buy into this because the problem is also on the nose of the car. The only affected areas are the nose and the front fenders. Help!

You'll need to strip these areas down and remove/repair the problem. If you just sand the car and paint it they will for sure show up again. Fix the problem. Take the areas down with a sander and see what is there, the problem may be just under the paint or it may be in the glass but it will need to be corrected if you don't want it to come back. Bob
