Car BOMBARDED with rock chips!

construction on 75, and cars in front of me just blasted my car with the crap from the roads like an AK47.... now I have multiple rock chips on my car

I'm ordering some Dr. Colorchip to see if I can get most of it in control, but likely will need to respray my car at some point, and then PPF this thing. GOSHDARNIT!

This is one of my worse nightmares in automotive ownership!

Sorry you are having to deal with this.

Sorry for your loss.

Painful check to write to the PPF guys when I did it, but it was WELL WORTH IT!

Dr Color Chip is good for what it is though.

Garage List
Can you make any claim to the city for this? I know people get reimbursed for tire damage from potholes.

It's Comprehensive.

He just needs to file a claim.

The very reason I stay off the damn freeway.

My buddy got peppered with rock chips on his 1m.

He filed an insurance claim and they ended up painting the whole car.

Insurance covers rock chips? I've never heard this.

Damn, hate to see this. The same thing happened to me, but I have full front PPF and it only left one mark worth noting in the PPF.

Turns out there was a dump truck with rocks just dumping debris everywhere. I couldn’t believe how well the PPF held up given the fury.

It sucked paying $1,800 up front, but I would lose my mind looking at rock chips.

Very sorry to see this FFS, what a nightmare - now I might not be able to sleep tonight.

This is one of the most painful things any car person can go through. I know how you feel man, PPF that down the road. At least the front bumper. Worth every penny.
