Shot clearcoat and roof paint

Ok I have a question about my 88' bronco II. The clearcoat on the roof is basically gone and is chipping off where it still exists. There are some spots where primer is starting to show and two spots that have surface rust. I want to sand all of the roof paint and junk off and then re prime it with metal etching primer, but then the chipping clearcoat will spread to the rest of the body. What do you guys think? Would it just be easier to repaint the whole truck, or fix what I've got?

To fix it properly, the whole truck will have to be stripped. This was a common problem on the Fords. A lot of work anfd a lot of expense if you get someone else to do it. If I were you, I would do it one section at a time. Epoxy prime, so it won't rust again.

One drawback to fords. sigh..... Anyways, I think I will have it repainted. That is after I finish a little minor bodywork and all of the mechanical repairs are done of course. Thanks poncho.
