First paint chip...

Was at a local store yesterday and there was a guy doing some mowing around the parking lot. Well he must have hit something with the mower and threw it against my car. Now I have a lovely little chip on my rear wheel arc. Going today to see how I can go about fixing it. Or even if it's worth fixing.

I didn't notice it until later after he had left already. I cant prove he did it anyway so there is no point to even talk to him. I'd just get mad and wind up in prison.

No I'd in prison for beating him nearly to death when he said something stupid. I've met the guy before and don't like him. Not that he did this intentionally, just that he's an idiot.

I saw that and im with you. too good to be true. I was just going to buy touch up paint from the dealer for only 12.98 + tax. I think the dr colorchip is like $40

Yeah, I've wanted to find some touch paint for a while, but had a bad experience with my Pontiac about 10 years ago. Really don't wanna be a guinnea pig. This site seemed to offer the same materials, plus a few extra, and a much bigger bottle of paint for about the same price.

Our landscapers let grass clippings blow on my car unless I am in sight :(

I try to keep mine nice too... a little tougher in Vermont... we get all 4 seasons which means, snow sanding salt. Try to wash is once a week, but the small chips from winter driving over the past 2 winters is taking it's toll. :(
