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

I put the oversized splach guards on as soon as I notice the chips. The SSR had less than 800 miles on it, it looks like it has 100,000 miles on it. I took it to the dealer today and got the old "there's nothing we can do". I asked the body shop Mrg. why the only place there were chips was on the fender and ferder guard. The kick pannel under the door doesn't have a one, and the fender behind the rear wheel doesn't have any!!! The paint on the fender has a different texture than on the body. Both the kick pannel and the rear fender lower are plastic body pieces, therfore a different paint process. Has anyone any suggestions what I could do to next???
IMO they should come from the factory/dealer with them installed!!! What's another $15.00 when it would save a lot of heartach!!!!
