Paint Chips



Should there be any urgency to get paint chips repaired?
The metal is exposed and they are about 3/4 inch in diameter.

The hood was just painted and I'm thinking about waiting about a year (hopefully there will be more chips by then) to have them repaired.

Since the metal is exposed, maybe I should do a touch up/primer job until it can be professionally fixed?


in the short term, touch up paint may be the way to go. It won't look exactly pretty, but it will keep the metal protected.

If they are as big as a penny like you say then get them fixed ASAP. They will rust and flake a lot if you don't. But if they are about the size of a pencil led then just put a good coat of wax over them and wait until you want to repaint the hood.

Ya just keep them waxed, same thing as having them painted really. I have had three small chips on my cobras hood for a few years now with no issues. Going to have the hood painted eventually


the chips were way above the clear bra would have protected.
