Paint Peeling? Anyone ever had this major issue.

I removed the clear bra on my 2008 135i (Alpine White). It was clear bra'd from the mirrors forward (Front fenders, bumper, hood, etc.)

I used a heat gun and did everything the way you are supposed to, but when I got to the end of the hood, a 2" by 2" section of the pain came off with the clear bra. None of the other panels had this problem, nor did the rest of the hood.

When i took it to get it painted, the painter said the paint essentally just peeled off the hood like it wasn't bonded to the E-coat at all. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem on there cars before? I am not the first owner, and I am just hoping that at one point someone just did a terrible job painting the hood, and the rest of my car isn't like this.
