Paint Clear Coat

A couple of weeks ago, the clear coat started flaking off the paint on my front hood. There are a ton of sites that give suggestions on how to deal with this but I wanted to see if anybody here had ever had to deal with it.

Anybody got a solution to stopping it and fixing the small spot that no longer has clear coat on it?

There are ways to temporarily fix this...but none that look really nice.
Ford trucks had several colors with adhesion issues in 1999 and the best fix for it is to sand it and reclear the whole hood. If it's flaking off there is probably some type of contaminant in the metal, primer, or basecoat and it's just going to keep flaking off.
A lot of these contaminant issues were specific to certain production plants and mostly occurred on the hood.

Red, thanks for the response. I missed it till now. I actually have more peeling on the top of the cab but, because the truck is lifted so high, nobody can see it and I'm mainly concerned with the hood. If I was to sand and recoat it, do you know of any specific product to use?

Honestly, the only way to get rid of it in it's entirety is to sand the hood completely and start from scratch.

The last one of these I did, I took the hood to bare metal, cleaned it, and primed, painted and clear coated.. It's the only way to really solve it.

I tried looking at the link to your pics but it's not working.
Depending on the color, I suppose a body shop could fix that spot and do a blend in to the rest of the hood...but you may keep having clear peel off elsewhere.

I'd do it once and be done with it.

I hear ya and if everything else on the truck was good, I'd go for it but the goober I bought the truck from had apparently loaded the truck with sand or dirt and while the damage is hard to see, all four sides of the bed are damaged (as well as the bottom) and and at some point, I'm going to replace the bed and figure I'll go for a full paint job when that happens, so I don't want to bother with just repainting the hood, right now. I'm just trying to stop it from getting any worse, in the meantime.
