Clear Coat Removal Questions?

OK, I'm going to respray my new to me front fenders and also my OEM hood. The hood looks like the moon due to the clear coat peeling and discoloring.
Is there a way to remove the clear coat without getting into the base coat?
Do I have to sand all the way down to metal?
I hate paint prep

Nope, if its starting to delam sand all the clear off. Then proceed with the standard paint process. Wipe with wax& grease remover, tack it off seal, then base then clear.

Try this first and report back so I know what to do with my jeep after I run it into the ground.

EDIT: Product link would be helpful, so here it is:

Rust oleum makes a clear coat/ base coat stripper. Has anyone used this?

No, i really dont like any sort of " chemical" stripper. For one its messy, two its a pain in the ass, three it penetrates which means what ever doesnt come off with the stripper you get to sand off or you will have problems later. Sanding the clear is the best bet

Thanks all.
I just hate sanding. There was a new hood locally on CL for 95. I shoulda bought it.

Well I think it's a given that you would strip the clear from the problem areas and then apply...

Polish the basecoat. Yeah, that'll work
