I know this is going way, way back, but on my 1991 Hardbody, the paint just sort of evaporated over the years. First the clear coat, then the actual paint itself, on the hood, top, and fenders. When I finally sold it after 20 years of ownership, it was down to the primer on the hood, and I had some surface rust. It was charcoal gray. I know this has little bearing on this particular case, but it seems Nissan, among other makes has has this problem for a long time. I suspect the water-based paints now used just don't hold up.

Hope my 2011 does better. I plan on keeping it until it is just a big pile of rust in the driveway.

A day after seeing this post I came across a blue frontier just like this while has so many big spots of paint missing...looks like it all just fell right off.
