    easiest/best way to fix bubbled clear coat

    Looks like rain water has settled on the passenger and driver door sill. most likely due to parking on the street, the road camber means that water has settled on the sill and seems to have seeped in over time (add a fair few days of afternoon summer sun) resulting in a fucked door.

    Possibly going to upgrade car soon and I think this could put people off as the rest of the car is in excellent condition. So what's the best/cheapest/easiest way to fix it? Is there a product that I can use with a drill attached buffer that will do the trick? Or is it a panel shop job? I don't have time or patience to wet and dry back the clear coat and recoat with 2K clear, would rather pay someone, and if that's the only way then so be it.

    I paid some one to re do the front and rear spoilers on the clubbie for this exact reason.

    Cost $800 for the two pieces drive in drive out.

        only other option would be to strip the clear all the way off and polish the paint.

                Sand it flat then wrap the car.
