that's not your paint peeling off - its the clear coat on top of the paint.

You're going to need to the help of someone who know more about paint.

You can try YouTube for clear coat solutions if you wanna have a go your self .

Yes looks like the lacquer ~ suspect this might have been a respray at some time in it's past.

Re: why is paint peeling off?

As said above the car looks like its maybe been resprayed at one point ..the lacquer is probably peeling due to poor prep or a reaction to the paint below

Do you wash it with washing up liquid,if so dont.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
