Chipped paint thanks to my wife...

So my wife swung the door open and hit OUR Blazer in the driverway!

What needs to be done to fix this? I cant tell if thats down to metal. I was thinking of just getting touch up clear paint so it doesnt rust...

Looks like it's down to metal to me.

Same thing happened to my car. Easy fix, way easier than a standard paint chip.
Because the damage here is on an edge or corner and not on a flat surface, just apply the paint from your GM touch up paint applicator using the *side* of the brush, *not* the tip. Make sure you don't have too much paint on the brush and just apply it with several gentle strokes using the side of the brush.

Do a few coats and you should be fine.

That one is maybe the easiest one. Edge of the door. Paint will flow and stick well. And doesn't really need to blend.

Post up after pics when you do it.

Had the same chip on the driver's side. Touched up, but it chipped again. Had the dealer re-paint. $300 for a door removal, break down, paint the entire door, replace. Cannot tell it was ever there.

OhDamn.

I have one more on the inside of the door from when my friend just tossed my door open like it was a Honda. I never bothered fixing it because it's barely noticeable when it's shut.

You can buy it from your dealership.
Won't cost you any more than 10-15 bucks.

I have a rock ship on the front fascia, I noticed when I washed Penny last night. What should I do to fix this? I also made a mistake and got a bit too close to the garage door and scuffed the very tip of the front bumper. I feel like an idiot having hit the door with my car, but I really touched it just enought to scuff the paint.

Will touch up paint work for both of these issues?

took dad for a late fathersday trip to his favorite national park and lodge for lunch and he swung the door open and scuffed the door edge(grrr) against another car. held it in and didn't let him know it made me mad. he did acknowledge it later on and sort of knew it made me mad but on a day like this what can you say? it is a little rough but not chipped out. will sand it out with light grit sand paper tomorrow and buff it out. luckily it is where it will blend in with out it being obious. just wish people were more careful with such nice things.

one more thing, in the pic below there is a clear plastic guard on the outter edge of the door but it is nearly invisable, in pictures you have to zoom way in to pick it up. might put one on the passanger side now

I had one similar to that, same spot,not quite that bad. I got some touch up paint from the dealer and put several coats on and you cant even tell it was damaged. Just be very precise with the touchup paint, don't get it on the painted surface, let it flow out to the edges of the chip.
