Chip on my Patriot
1 Attachment(s)
This morning I discovered a chip on the front of my Jeep. So ugly :(
Probably from a rock on the highway. Any quality patches? Should I look into a reflector or shield?

I wouldn't worry to much. I'm used to it here in pa between the idiot drivers and salt trucks in winter. Every new car I get no matter how hard I try to keep it perfect eventually something happens like rock chip, windshield nick, idiot opening door into in parking lot etc.

I've found it helps to drive something just cruddy and used enough that stuff like that can be just shrugged off. It also helps that when I decide to fix paint spots (rocker rust, etc) on my truck that rustoleum white is a pretty damn near match to gm work truck white.

Touch up paint, and keep after it. Only way to really fix it is repaint the whole panel, and it will just happen again. They are cars; this stuff is inevitable.

I might just do the touch up and get that WeatherTech.
