Well while the Beetle is in for service I'm borrowing my grandpa's 1996 Jeep Cherokee 4x4 4.0L. Has been an amazing vehicle, has 134k original miles, and my family owns some gold mines in western Arizona so it does occasionally get out into the sticks and does quite a bit of 4-wheeling. The scratches on the sides from cruisin' through the bushes doesn't matter, but the paint is starting to peel is a concern. In 2007 my grandfather bought it from an auction and it was owned by the state of Arizona as a what we assume an Ariozna Department of Transportation vehicle. I believe it was maintained very well, but I'm sure it has been parked in the Arizona sun for the past 18 years without a drop of wax or shade. I just noticed this paint on the roof flaking off and it looks like a bird pooped on it and that's made it flake off (What did that bird eat!?). I believe it's only been flaked off for a week or two at the most. I also have noticed the paint peeling on the driver's side fender for quite a while. I also have known it has peeled in the drip rails of the roof but the paint peeling there hasn't continued to peel. I did know it was peeling under the hood on the inside part of the fenders, but that didn't really matter so long as it didn't start spreading but now it looks like it is. Eventually my grandfather will buy another vehicle and the Jeep will become mine and I'll keep it forever. I know alot of people say that, but I really will keep this Jeep forever. What I was thinking is to mask off a 3 inch X 3 inch spot on the hood in a square and sanding it down and painting it myself either with some white spray paint or maybe the color matching aerosol stuff. What are your guy's recommendations?
