Default Paint chips

My paint job is sadly starting to rust in places, and even chip away. The roof of my car is really bad, and it is only going to chip more. I would like to have the whole body painted, but unfortunately, that costs a lot of money.

Is there a way where I can get maybe just the roof re painted? If so, how much will that cost. It is only going to get worse, so I want to act now.

yes they can sand the spots then feather the paint out so it matches the rest of the car thats what we did the first time my car was in a wreck because if some one running a light hitting some one then a nother then spinning back arround and hitting the driver door

Yes they can just paint the roof. My roof looks terrible and is starting to bubble around the windshield. My hood and front quarter panels was repainted about 4 years ago, and it matches the rest of car perfectly.

The roof is next.

My Olds is going to need a roof job too. There'* a spot of paint flaking off above the windshield and a week ago we had a wet heavy snow, and I had a leak just above the rearview mirror where my two dome light thingys are.
