Angry First chip

Sucks!!!
Just had the hood painted and now there is a nice chip on the hood about one third the way up.

I guess it was going to happen sooner or later, but it still stinks.

I touched it up. Oh well.... stupid roads.

You weren't fast enough to dodge the stone? Sad just Sad

It is an unfortunate fact we face. I bet your touch up looks fine

It wouldn't have helped. The chip was higher than I would have put the bra anyway.

Also I was told no bra or wax until 3 months after the paint job.

What are you suppose to do not drive the thing on the road or highway for 3 months?

On installer said it was only gauranteed against bug hits not stones. Is that right?
