What year is your Chevy? Are you the original owner? I'm asking because dependent on age and ownership there may be warrenty on your vehicle. If the paint is peeling I would recommend stripping the car down to bare metal, even where the paint looks good today. You just don't know when the paint that looks good today is going to let go underneath your freshly painted Chevy.

Sand it down to the metal with 80 grit and epoxy prime.

The DA is what you want to use. I would use the grinder action to get it down to bare metal and then go over it all with the orbital action, both with 80 grit. Then epoxy primer, its 2 part and you will need a spray gun.

Thats how Im doing my peeling paint car anyway. Feel free to correct if this is bad info.

Interesting that it is silver. Between 1976 and 2009 I had four Silver cars. Every single one of them had paint problems exactly as mentioned here. One Plymouth, one Ford, One Chevy and the last one was a Pontiac G8. Three of the four were purchased new. Be interested to hear opinions on why the trouble with silver paint.

if color has to do with anything in those respects it would have to do with fading, not peeling. Peeling would be either prepping, compatibility issues, or oxidation of the clear, which is most common on horizontal panels facing the sun.

If color would have anything to do with peeling it would probably come from a single stage, but haven't heard of any issues like that. As far as fading goes, yellows and reds fade pretty fast. There's a lime green I always see on the newer VW bugs and most of them I see are badly faded. Some pigments are more prone to it I guess.

Very common with these trucks. My white 96 C2500 is flaking in a few spots, as is the neighbors white K1500 across the street. I think remember one of our paint gurus on here mentioning that the primer was at fault and the paint made only a mechanical bond with it and as the paint cured (which it continues to do over time, apparently) the mechanical bond gave. I'm paraphrasing and might have got it wrong. I know very little about body work compared to the guys on here.

Point is that you need to take it down to the metal as said above.

Yes, the paint should be taken off completely...everywhere. You can use a DA (dual action) sander with 80 grit to remove the existing paint. Take all the paint off to bare metal, do any body work you require, epoxy prime the car. Depending on the type of epoxy primer you use, it may be block sanded and ready for paint or it may need a 2 part high build primmer applied, block sanded and paint.

Sounds easy...well it's a lot of work.

Hope this helps.
Ray

It's NOT just a silver color problem. My white 1991 s-10 4x4 looks horrible! It just started peeling about 2 years ago. My Dad bought it new and I bought it from him. One time after a rain, i was driving down the street and it was blowing off in sheets. I couldn't believe it. Now it's starting to rust but it has to wait it's turn to get into the garage for paint prep. Too many projects or too small of garage (3-car). Something to do with the water base primer is what I heard.

peeling paint

I agree with stripping it down to bare metal with 80 grit , than applying some
etching primer to protect against rust .
