I bought an '07 stang a year ago. The previous owner had just had it repainted and it looked great, but I am fairly confident it was a cheap $$$ Maaco paint job. I don't have a garage and unfortunately after a year in the sun, the clear coat has started melting severely (I assume that is what this yellow/brown is).
I have used claybar to remove it in some sections but it is very difficult and it keeps coming back. I recently did the driver's side door and you can tell it is white compared to the hood.
I really don't have any experience with paint. I would like to know if there is some way I could more quickly and permanently get rid of the clearcoat on my car? Also, its probably important to note this is my daily driver and I just want it to look presentable, I can't afford to care that the paint will fade faster and chip easier once the clear coat is removed :P Hoping for a solution that I can do myself for less than $100.
##UPDATE## Based on the comments and answers I understand that it cannot be clearcoat. It is dried on to the car in a running/melting like pattern making me doubt its pollen. I am confident no one is intentionally messing with my car. Even more than figuring out what it is though I am not sure how to get it off. Claybar is taking way too long and is not a permanent solution.
