Yes, unfortunaltey, when the paints chipped off, you cant do much with it.
some bigger chips you can fill and it looks better, not perfect but better.
lot's of chips on the front... ya know.

if you do repaint, check into the Clear Bra!
My truck and the silver truck both have it. So will my mustang once the front is painted.

well is isnt like...gouged out chips..from stones...but its more of a 2 tone black color in some spots..i think the bugs may have ate the clearcoat...it only looks good if its shined up really well

sorry for the delay getting back to you... been workin my ass off!!

without seeing the damage i cant recommend anything, theres several options depending on damage. if the clear is coming off, you need to paint it anyway. should be fairly affordable though, dont sweat it O0
