Soft Paint?

Today it was in the lower sixties, so I washed my baby. I was so bummed!!!!! The paint in front of the rear wheel well looked as if it had over spray on, grayish white. I discovered to my horror that it was the paint or I guess the clear coat. It almost looks as if it was sandblasted!!! This isn't my first black truck/car, I had others for years and not had them look this bad!!! Anyone else have this problem??? :cry

Won't mud flaps help this?
Mud Flaps

HI Bill,

I have slightly oversized black mud flaps and so far after 2,000 miles I haven't gotten any chips yet. :thumbs I think the mud flaps helped out a lot and certainly do work great... along with the running boards they make for a good defense against those stone chips on the rear fender areas.


Do you know what brand/model you used? I saw another post that mentioned a set made by Groboski (a division of Highland, industries) *Long Life Duramax...Part # 10057 *12 " wide X 18" high and about 1/8" thick.

I better get a set on quick... I'm alreaddy up to 1600+ miles.
