Unfortunately the US EPA (along with other governments) banned the former 2-part formulas that were typically good for 20ish years -- even outside.

The newer "more environmentally friendly" 2-part paints are lucky to make ten years before this sort of thing happens. My truck is trashed and will have to either be repainted or rattle-canned for this reason. Fall/winter project if I do it, or pay bigly to have it done.

Maintenance (e.g. good paste wax, etc.) helps but won't stop it. The "more friendly" formula simply isn't as tough, particularly in the UV (and also impact resistance) areas.
