Default Paint chipping on tailgate. Repaint?

Heres my deal. As you can see below, my paint is chipping pretty good on my tailgate, and does more everytime I power wash it. Now, my question, what is going to be the cheapest and easiest way to go about fixing this. Im not terribly worried about quality, just as long as it looks decent. Any ideas?

yeah thats my truck, about $110 a bucket for the UV protected stuff and i put it on myself. Over the cost of a paint job plus it lasts forever and cant get scratched, well worth the time!!!
