how should I detail peeling paint? lol



I detail cars as side work. Usually just neighborhood people. Friends. Family etc.  My usual routine is wash. Clay. One step polish and then wax. Dress tires trim and plastic. 


My neighbor wants me to detail his truck next. Its in terrible shape. Its a 96 bronco, red. And probably never been waxed ever. It has peeling paint on the hood and all the pillars. He talked to me and doesnt expect a miracle. He just wants the paint to look a little better. And some protection on it for the winter. 


So What should I do when i get to the peeling paint/clear coat failure. just go right over it? Skip the panel all together?


The hood for example has clear coat failure only at the top where it meets the windshield. If I polished the hood up to where the clear failure starts I feel like it'll look even worse. 


The doors fenders, quarters, and trunk dont have any failure. s Should i just polish them, and on the peeling paint just clay and wax????
