    The top of my cars paint is chipping off. Anyone else seeing this? Is there a way to stop the process from getting worse? paint.JPG

    Yes. That's an extremely common sight here in AZ.

    The only thing you can do is keep it out of the sun.

    And to take care of it the whole time. Wash and wax often enough to give the clear coat a protective skin, then that doesn't happen. That usually happens in cars that have had detailing neglected.
