Has anyone had any problems with paint chips. I just found one right by my wheel well. What can I do to fix them. Anyone have any ideas? Do I have to have it painted?

I can think of two options:

1. Have a body shop fix it. ($$$)

2. Buy a bottle of brush-on touch up paint.
Clean the area with a solvent that will remove
wax and oil, but not paint. Using a tiny applicator,
like a toothpick or a single broom straw, dab tiny amounts of
paint into the chipped area, and only into the chipped area.
Fill it with paint like it is a tiny lake. Be careful not
to use too much. If you do, wipe it off with the
solvent and start again. Try to get your lake
level with the existing paint.

The result won't be perfect--if you want perfection,
you will have to have a pro repaint the entire area.
But it will look a heck of a lot better than before,
and no one but you will notice it.

If not completely satisfied, your money cheerfully refunded. :p

Best,

I found a company in my city a few years ago that specialized in touch-up work, and they worked in co-operation with my guy who does the dent repair. If it needed painting he would send people to this company and they did a fantastic job on my Intrepid. I gave up on my 300M as the front was too slopped and really attracted rocks even though I had a nose bra.
