Default Bad Oxidation

I have a really bad case of oxidation on my truck. Part of its due (I believe) to the spray pattern of the washer fluid nozzles (Shooting up and over rather than on the windshield). Anyway, hood has the clear coat down to the paint and the roof is worse, its getting down to the metal. I'll get some pics up when I can, but trust me, its pretty bad. All I want to do is protect the metal and keep the truck looking decent. It's not like it's going on a show room floor anytime soon.

Any ideas?

Take it to the dealership, it may qualify for the following TSB:

23-57-97 Emerald Green (PGS color) - poor paint coverage

Unfortunately, the MHD, manufacturing plant code, and paint code (PGF) do not coincide with the TSB requirements. Too bad. Any other ideas?

We'll have to wait for some pics , but it sounds like the clear coat is done . It still won't hurt to let the dealer look at it . They still might do something for ya . Even if you have a small deductible , go for it .
