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.
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.
Opinions welcome.
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?
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 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.
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.
