OK I`ve got some strange flaking off the front of my car, the very tip of the hood. It seems like the outer layer of paint is slowly flaking off in ever-widening circles but it still looks black underneath. all the edges of the circles are sticking up a little so it`s not like I can put touch up paint on them because I don`t think it will hold. Should I sand it a little or something? I need some suggestions. Thanks in advance.

I had some flaking when my rear bumper got tapped buy a big ole suv? Anyways, there was some very translucent paint flakes coming out, assume it's the clear coat. Still under warrenty?

it was proly started by some rock that flew up or something, in which case its normal wear and tear. I dunno if you think it would look tacky, but some clear vinyl along the front edge of the hood should keep it from getting worse. If you do a good job w/ the vinyl, you can barely see it. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

By the way, most auto-parts stores have some of that 3M vinyl stuff.
