Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
Why has the paint on the hood of my 1999 Ford Exporer peeled up leaving clear thin plastic looking edges?
Your paint is peeling due to wear and tear. It usually occurs because of the suns ultra Violet rays and salt from the road during the winter. This is normal. The only way to stop this from happening is to take the hood off and have it sanded and repainted. After that you will need to wax it about once a week with a wax that protect the clear coat. You can buy this at any automotive parts store. After you have it repainted they will tell you not to wax or go through a high pressure car wash for 30 days so the paint has time to completely cure. I would suggest that you take it to Macco. they will be the cheapest on having it repainted.

Complain to the dealer and if they won't do anything ask to talk to a factory rep, this sould never happen, I had my truck repainted for this same issue.
