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.

would be the clear coat peeling you are seeing
should not need a full roof respray unless very bad

best option
get a quote from a car spray painter re-gel coat the roof
takes a fine sanding the roof area that is peeling
and a few coats of clear cote gel
and buff to a great finish

The paint on the hood of 06 Chrysler 300 peeling


U will find that this is a repair at some time. the mil thickness of the clear is to low and the uv light is breaking down the base coat causing the clear to peel and the elements to penatrate to the primer.
Probaly looking at $350 to $600 depending whether they blend the color on the fenders for a good match

1998 F 150 regular cab paint peeling problems


Ford will not assist on a 1998 vehicle because of the age.
You can primer and spot paint but it would probably do better if you sanded it down first.
