Paint Oxidation Help

the paint on my roof has been oxidating. The guy that sold the truck to me said that he took it to a place and they acted like they had to paint the whole thing, but I do not want them messing up the factory paint I have on the body. I don't mind going with a cheap paint job since since it's just the roof. Do any of you guys have any suggestions or price estimates for me?

i'll take a picture later and post it. I think the oxidation/ peeling is too much to be recovered by clay bars and compound

if the paint is pealing then something is going on, and I dont think that is a factory paint job. oxidating is one thing, if u live in the south or southwest, and its never waxed and run through cheap car washes then its going to fade
peeling sound like its been wrecked and covered up!

Any good body/paint shop can match the good paint and feather to match. They do it every day.-I don't buy that needing to paint the whole thing.

I wouldn't go as far as jumping to the conclusion it's been wrecked. Especially since it's the roof it's not like if you wreck the truck they replace just the roof. It honestly just sounds like it was neglected to be washed/waxed consistently and probably spent it's time in one of the dry "Sun states" like Texas or Arizona. I see cars like that all around here in Texas with the just the roof peeling.

Any paint will peel eventually if not taken care of.

My 97's hood was peeling and it was the original paint.

oh no, it wasn't wrecked or anything. I live in Florida, and the two previous owners lived in this area too. My 96 honda accord did the same thing too, except worse. I don't think black paint holds up as well in the sun. I'll take a pic tmr and post it and let you guys see if you think it needs to be taken to a shop to get a little paint job.

Just saw you are in Niceville. I have vacationed w/ my girlfriends family a few times in Ft. Walton. Her uncle lives in Shalimar. Nice place.

And yeah...FL sun+black paint is not a good combo.
