Default 95 Bonnie paint flaking.

I'm wondering if any one else has the same problem with the paint flaking off the body. My car has white paint, and from what I hear, white paint doesn't stick to the primer coat very well. Does GM have any advice or out of warranty stuff for this?

My paint flaked all the time on my 95 SSE. And it was white paint. Basically, when one part got real bad, I had it repainted. The old paint barely stuck to the primer.

On 2 different occasions, I went to the car wash and had literally washed away paint off of my car. I figured, cars almost on its last legs, I will just do a typical repaint of the infected areas with a can of spray paint. Surprisingly, the Dupli color paint worked pretty well. If you were to look real close, you can tell where the paint was flaking off, but from a distance, the car looks fine.

That'* due to an old painting process where thay would magneticly charge the paint.
After a while the charge wares off and the paint dosen't stick.
Sucks don't it?

Huh?? Yeah, it does. But how does the magnetically charged paint stick to the plastic fenders and bumpers??
