That aint a paint chip...This is a paint chip!!

So I just finished my long move from Yuma, Az to Stillwater Ok. and I wanted to get all the bugs off the front of my car. So I pull into the car wash and go to use the pressure washer, the wind catches my door and it swings right into the brick wall, violently... and I do mean violently. Here is the damage.

So the next time you're feeling bad about a chip to the gills of front of your car, resort back to this and maybe my misery can ease you pain(t)... Pun intended.

I was moving and didn't have a home. I usually 2 bucket wash but oh well. Yeah the door is good but paint was destroyed. It hit so hard I was actually happy paint was the only carnage.

Man that makes me sick to see that! A good body shop can have it back showroom. I did not have a chip, but was very unhappy with the color mismatch of my rear bumper cover. I took it to a dealership that has a very good body shop and they had their paint company to come in setup and took pictures and then mixed the paint for them to get a perfect color match. You might want to inquire the same about an exact match on your door.
