I have an outside swing I painted last year. I used oil based paint. It peeled very badly. I have scraped it and started to repaint. The new paint doesn't cover the bare spots. It looks terrible. Should I use latex? If so, can I paint that over the oil based that is still on the swing? Thanks.

Scrape and sand the entire swing. Wipe everything down so you have a nice clean surface to paint. Prime the entire swing with an alkyd oil primer. Next, top coat with a premium LATEX. Benjamin Moore paint would be an excellent choice ( primer and paint ). Good luck!
