h2loca, if the paint is peeling or flaking, it's not properly attached to the substrate. I would chemically strip it completely off and neutralize the surface afterwards. The application of an epoxy sanding
primer would follow. Then I would sand it fair prior to filling any pinholes or body damage with an epoxy
fairing compound. Once it was completely faired (spray a bit of polyurethane
primer over the bodywork to check it) you would be ready to apply the new LPU. When setting your budget
, remember that a good repaint of a C-38 would run you anywhere from 5K to 9K depending on location and the paint quality.
