Peter,

Unless your ’90 has had paint work done before, it’s single stage paint. The early Miatas can sometimes be brought back to relatively good condition with a “cut and buff”. The trick is to find someone familiar with this technique, the single stage paint is much softer than clear coat and if polished as if it were clear, can easily burn right through. I think Joe has the name of someone he’s used in the past, I’ll let him chime in. Maybe a couple pictures would help understand the situation more fully.
