    The first chips are always painful

    Not even 3k miles and I have 2 road wounds on my hood! Took the afternoon and washed the car and nearly dropped to my knees.





    Oh well.

    By the way, those Sham Wow things are terrible! My blue shop towels did better at soaking up water. Save your money and stick with the towels, Sham Wow is garbage.

    Get used to it. I have 4 rock chips on our hood. Never seen a paint that chips so easy in only 2000 miles of normal use.

    Looks it's just the clearcoat scuff, so you are in luck! Use some Scratch X and they should disappear. Amazon.com: Meguiar's G10307 Scratch X 2.0: Automotive

    I was thinking the same thing. I'll shoot some goop on it tomorrow and report back.

    Ouch! Hope it's a scuff that can be removed and not a chip. Good luck.
