Re: Dealing with rock chips

I just got mine back from having the front bumper painted (4th time since 04). This time though he said there was a poor repair done to the bumper and what ever they used was gooey. Said it was preventing the paint from properly sticking. He took it down to bare plastic and started over. I was quite intrigued about this "repair" as I have owned the car since it had 562 miles and the only thing ever done was chip repairs. He said he was intrigued as well since the cover was flawless under the goo. Painter said he added a flex agent that slows the drying of the paint to keep it flexible longer. Hopefully the paint sticks better this time.
