ok about question 1 .
were the clear is failing you will also find the base color with be affected also . base color will not in any way hold up to any weather . so this may also lead to the substraight (metal) under the finish to be affected in some way . like small rust spots under the finish . you may not be able to see them untill you sand the finish off the car were the clear is failing . you may want to sandright down to the substraight in a small area about a 1' x 1' size should give you an idea of just what is going on under the finish were the clear is missing .
if it looks ok then just strip off the clear were it is failing and spray a coat of etch or epoxy primer over the bare metal and then use a filler primer over that .

now because your thinking of white you have two ways to go . you can do a single stage finish or a base clear finish .
it would be up to you on what you want to use . on a 1988 car i would pick single stage . now white is a hard color to spray like any light color you can't see at all that good when your spraying it . you have to look at the side when your spraying light colors to see how it's laying down .standing right behind the gun you will not see just how it is laying down and it will run or come out dry .

as for the cars color being dark and you wanting to paint it a light color is no big deal . you should be using a light color sealer 1st before you srpay your top coats of color .

as for a ez product to spray for a new painter . i would go with the limco supreme plus it's a urethane based product that is user friendly . `
