paint chipping/Big 3

ok i was wondering if any one else had this problem with they're paint
i have an white ext cab and the part over the rear side window where its suposed to channel rain through is chipping underneath? in the channel.. i was wondering it i would just pick off the pieces and mask and get white spray paint and do it like that
or if there was a way to stop it from cracking off b4 it got worse

i cant get pics till thursday.. and i probably wont get replys till then casue iv confused about half of the people reading this right now haha
soo thanks for the help..
oh and if you have pics of you doin the Big 3 i'd like to see them too.. i searched.. nothing in the first 7 pages.

I've got the same cracking on my truck, I don't think spray paint would stop it completely. It's because water gets in there and sits.

I've done the big 3 and its pretty straight forward. I don't have any pics though. It helps if you get some new battery terminals that accept more wires or for the sizes you need. Makes it look a lot nicer. I have a 850W kenwood amp running a 12" Sound Splinter RL-P. It definately needs a more powerful alternator, although the big 3 did help a lot.
