Hello all, my car has a LOT of paint chips in the hood. I was thinking about selling it but circumstances have changed and I’ll probably be keeping it. As a result I’ve been doing some repairs that I was putting off.
Theres also a little bit of cracking in the paint above the Toyota badge that I’m not sure what to do with.
Anyway, I have very limited experience with fixing paint chips. I’ve tried the little bottles but never had good results. I wanted to know:
- If you have had good results
- What products you got the best results with
- About how much it would cost to do myself or If I paid a detailer
- Anything you think could be helpful
I’m also considering purchasing a bug deflector for my Corolla to try to cover up the front edge and hopefully limit more from happening. I was thinking about one of these styles and would like thoughts on that as well.
They both cost about $40 for the record. I’m leaning towards the better as it sits flush with the hood instead of popped up but this might make it less effective. I think I prefer it without one at all but it could cover up the cracking and protect that area from spreading.
Thanks for any advice and for reading.
