Chipped/Cracked Car Paint


#1

T-Nation Vehicle Elite -

I've got a small bit of paint chipped straight off, right at the front end of the hood of my dark grey vehicle. It's down to the primer, with a small bit of rust in that spot.

Is there a product I can purchase to fix this, or am I better off taking it and dropping $100 on a pro's assistance?

Chipped paint like that will usually let moisture and stuff under the paint around it, causing it to bubble and flake off leaving you with a big spot of rust in a few months. If it had just happened, I would say get a bottle of touch up paint from the dealership and fix it; however since it has already started to rust you should spend the extra 100 bucks and get someone to fix it right and save yourself some money down the road.
