Hi, I was wanting touch up a few stone chips, while washing roof I noticed roof rack channel had significant

paint flaking off, I barely touched it and along the whole edge from back to front is... well see attached fotos.

Its a Rav 4 2012 cv we have had it for about 5yrs bought second hand. I can understand stone chips and or scratches

but this seems to be something altogether. On both sides of roof. 

How long is a factory paint guaranteed for for a toyota

Hi Ken,

That's really unfortunate. I've never seen factory paint peel off like that. I have, however, seen post factory paint peel mainly due to lack of good base prep work. It looks like the primer hasn't adhered to the metal which may indicate surface contamination prior to the application of the base primer.

Factory paint prep is pretty impeccable and I honestly think it's been repainted at some stage in it's life.

Lucky for you, the roof section can be repainted without having to blend the colour in anywhere else, due to the sectional design. I'd have it done before the rust sets in.
