Wow, impressive, the chrome yellow is impossible to get off normally

Now when I was removing some stickers on the bus I accidentally razor bladed to deep and it came off in big chunks and the steel was galvanized under it also

My egumikated guess is the new paint chemically soaked up through the layers, encapsulated the paint down to galvinizing and just "popped" loose due to metal shrinking

Something in new paint job must of chemically reacted with galvinizing and just let go of adhesion factor

Can you hit areas with rubber hammer and have more paint pop off?

This ain't nothing to complain about! That metal looks so pristine, at least your not rustin out! I wish my bus was made of galvanized steel. strip all the paint and it'll look like a delorean!

??? Looks just like galvanized that was not properly etched to begin with. Any kind if paint will let go and come off in big flakes if not.
