Some pics would help see the situation in this case. A lot of times its just the clear coat going to shit and theirs ways to alleviate the aesthetics of that from DIY to paint/body shops.

I have no idea what answer you are fishing for but it seems a paint job is in order.

I was thinking a paint job also but a paint shop told me they would have to strip it down. they said the primer was contaminated so I am just trying to figure out what to do I have tried to upload pictures but cannot for some reason. i just need someone to point me in the right direction. I can sand down affected areas and repaint with spray bombs if need be or have the whole vehicale painted. I just dont want it to come back if I do the whole truck Thanks for all the imput
