we did a lot of the de-lams here at the shop. real common problem. too much time elapsed on the assembly line between base/clear operations and had adhesion problems. if you have a good size air compressor, use a male and female air chuck fitting and screw them together, than snap that on to your air hose for a large bore air blower. it should knock most all the old clear off. a good quality duck tape can also be applied to pull off the clear. or a high pressure washer. once all the clear is removed, d/a sand with 320 lightly to clean everything up, thenwet sand with 400, wax and grease remover/tack rag it/ then 2 coats of base/then a couple coats of clear. you factory base coat should still have good adhesion. some guys will use a sealer over the old basecoat, but if its still solid, i dont see the need. i would use either a ppg or r-m base clear. not dupont.

glennster, thanks for giving me hope and info that I can do it. It's mostly the front end, hood and on a decal stripe along the bottom of the hood. Is there a place that sells the stripes for a '90 van? The original will probably get messed up.

The factory stripe is nla. Go to a body shop supply and see if you can match up the stripe, or get something as close as you can. Otherwise you will need to take an eraser wheel to remove all the stripe and re stripe with what ever is avaliable.

I agree. Sometimes it's trial and error. Not all delamination adheres the same, also depending on manufacture. I had some jobs that the clear would come off with a razor blade in a razor blade scraper tool. Then DA the basecoat. They were all a pain in the ___!
