It'll be a lot of work but you'll have to strip it to the metal...Your problem isnt so much with the cheap paint but with the primer since the chips go all the way down to the metal...
If you want it nice and want it to last I would strip it and use an epoxy primer over the metal....take the time to order some insted of this parts store crap...epoxy primers arent all the same either SPI epoxy is the most chip resistant ,user friendly epoxy I've ever used and I've been using it exclusivly for well over five years...however using it over your old paint and primer wont help, the car has to be stripped to the bare metal....
