Peeling paint
I have a couple spots on the rear driver side of my barth were the paint's peeling. It started last year & keeps peeling more .
It is bare aluminium were it peeled . No primer can be seen.

1) Is there anything i can do to stop the peeling from getting worse ?

2) Sand down the edge's & clear coat ?

Thanks , Bob

That's about all you can do. I don't think Barth ever used a primer or etched the shell. I have a few bubbles in the clear coat and some filial corrosion, but nothing major.
