Paint failure?

I know this car has had some paint on the two passenger side doors but a couple of wierd 'chips' have appeared as can be seen below. The old paint underneath seems very smooth and if you pick at an edge on the top coat you can get more off.

The paint work was done Nov 2016 by the insurance co...

Reckon I have any come back with the bodyshop?

Well it shouldn't be doing that - but at a guess, if you take it back they are going to say a stone chip has caused it.
I think I'd be explaining things to my insurance company first and trying to get them to help before going straight to the bodyshop.

Looks very much as though the paint is just lifting as the prep wasn't done and the paint underneath has not been abraded to me. As such it's only going to get worse and yes there should be some kind of recourse to complain but doing it via the insurance company using their muscle is probably the best.

If the surface underneath is smooth and shiny then they clearly haven't done their prep properly and I would want it fully repainted to a decent standard.
