Default I found my first paint chip!

Man! After coming out of the car wash yesterday, I jumped out to dry her off with a microfiber and found a small paint chip below the right headlight. ****!


I've gotta get that clear bra!

ouch

I was once told that in France, when you buy a car, they take a little gold hammer and give the car it's first dent before it leaves the lot... I guess to get it out of the way, or luck, or who knows?

Try backing into a fence and see how big of a scratch you can make. I did.

Yeah you know my custom crest? I found a chip when I cleaned the area to put the crest. Here is the funny thing. I could only see the chip if I looked down on it. If I looked straight at it I can't see it. I can feel it but its invisable.

i have a few chippies on my front end on hood and lower bumper area...

it is funny how when i see a chip or scratch, i tend to think about it for awhile, then one day, you see another one and then i start obsessing about that

Chips and scratches I can handle. Dings and dents drive me nuts.

i am with you on that - i had my Pearl White Solara for 3.5 years and it was in perfect shape, except for a few rock chips in front, only real ding was small dent near license plate and i could never figure out where that could have come from - figured someone must have hit it with a shopping cart...

I just got my first chip yesterday while driving on the freeway. Some huge rock flew off a garbage truck and hit my rear passenger door, it left a
1/8th inch chip.
