Clear coat on roof and edges of truck are coming off
I have a green colored 1994 Dodge ram 1500 long bed pick up. The paint started to peel off of the hood and then progressed to the top of the cab. The paint has now been reduced to the primer. I have noticed this problem on all 90s ram 4 x 4 pick ups. Especially in the green and white color. Does anyone know if Chrysler will fix this problem.
Truck was garaged for first 10 years and paint was fine. Parked outside for about 2 years and clear coat began to flake off. Especially, on roof and hood. Paint is a medium red.
clear coat coming off all over the front, bad paint job from Chrysler.
clear coat coming off, haven't fixed it, cost is more than the truck is worth.
Paint started coming off on the roof of my low mileage 2001 Dakota. It was always parked outside but still it started on the roof and quickly spread to the hood. Now it's 90% gone on both. Not rusting yet
Problem is I'm worried that if I get it re-sprayed without stripping the old paint where the paint still looks good if it will last.
Seem the paint issue was due to mixing to primer coat with the base coat. So I'm
Scared that the rest will start to fade and will pop up under the new paint, which would ruin my new paint effectively wasting the new paint job due to failure of the old base coat not being done properly.
Anyone had this problem?
Just wondering if it would be worth the extra cost to strip all the old paint before re,-spraying. The old paint looks good and doesn't really need painted. A good buff job would make it look good as new.
Maybe I should just have a cheap Macco paint job done on the hood and roof. Truck only has 70k on it now and everrhing is in excellent condition. I do plan to keep it for a while longer.
Clear coat peeled off slowly starting on hood and now entire hood and around windows.
Ihave a black Dakota truck that now has white appearing allover the truck. It's getting worst as time goes by. Inow have 42,250 miles on it. What can be done?
Clear coat started peeling on hood first at 175K, now at 252K, hood is completely gone, along with roof and top edges of all four doors. Just notices last month the wheel wells are also starting.
Have had problem with clear coat coming off, now going to get the whole truck repainted same color, black for just under 2,500.00 this seems like a good price, I hope.

Clear coat is peeling not resolved.
On top cab, almost all the way back straight through the middle
I have had some cracking and pealing. Was told by my local Dodge Dealer that in the paint jobs for my year truck, they combined the primer with the paint. As a result, the primer will not stick to the body and start to pull away from the body. All that can be done is to get a new paint job. Still the best vehicle I have ever owned.
Clear coat and paint oxidization on roof, hood and top of door
Hood, roof, and top of vendors have paint failing away, leaving a rough, ugly surface.
clear-coat paint peeling off
Not precisely sure when it started but within the last two years about 30% of my cab roof clear coat is peeling and my bedsides (right next to the Linex) and fender tops are starting to bubble and peel.
