Re: Priming over original paint

In the first picture the white area is where there is a low spot in the metal. It is the original white paint on the roof (this truck was gold with a white painted top). The area just below that spot is where I sanded through the white and the gold paint. The roof paint is nice and smooth but where I sand it the gold seems to flake off in tiny spots. The spots circled in red below show where the gold is flaking off leaving pits.

Looks like I'm going to have to sand down the entire roof down to bare metal. That's going to have to wait for better weather. We got 22 inches of snow earlier this week in NJ.

Thanks for the responses guys!
