What exactly is the material on the exterior roof?

Its like a thick material??? Anyways i haven't been on in quite awhile. Car is still jsb and outside forces have kept me from getting the car running again. I do however want to keep/slow things down from getting worse. Just wanted to know the best route to go. Thanks

So just a really thick coat of paint? The stuff chipping off is like 1/16" thick, probably thicker.

Maybe you're seeing the clear coat peeling?

Pics??

Sounds like plastic body filler, if it is anything other than a "skin" film coming off the paint.

Maybe someone repaired some hail damage, and it is body filler your seeing?

Yeah, itís just steel with primer, base coat, and clear. If youíre seeing anything else it would have to be shoddy repair work unfortunately.

That is a cracked and broken skim coat on the roof. My son has the same on 100/2000. Looked perfect until the PO got mad and dented the roof. Big piece broke off.

That simply is not right........ Maybe someone filled in a missing sunroof?

^ Yep, hail or maybe sunroof removal. Regardless someone has filled it for some reason and now itís no good.

So best route would be remove it all, do the por fix, apply a new skim coat and paint?

You don't really need POR if that is what you are suggesting. You will likely need some serious dent removal before removing any rust and priming/painting properly.
