Is lacquer peel on the body common?

Is it common for body panels to get lacquer peel? I have seen a evo 8 for sale but bumper and rear door has some peel on it.. being a painter to trade this puts me off as it would normally suggest that at some point it's been painted and the prep work has been poor hence why the new paint is peeling. I know nap cars from the 90s had issues with thin paint and usually peeled in places. Any info appreciated.

I’d say no generally, I suspect your initial thoughts are right and it’s been painted at some point.

If its a decent motor why not use it to your advantage & get it cheaper & paint it yourself!!

If your a good painter that is

I'd preferably not spend over 10k on a car that's possibly been badly damaged.
