Hey guys, want to get my car ppf but there a lot of rock chips that damaged the paint on my car. Anyone have recommendations for somewhere that does the paint fill in and ppf around the Bay Area SF ?

You're going to repaint the bumper first.

Ahh, so it would be better to repaint the whole bumper ? Or do you think filling in with Dr. color chip would suffice before PPF?

No I've been down this road. I thought maybe something could be done but I was wrong. PPF wants a pretty flat surface or it looks weird. If you only have a few chips this might be acceptable but if you have many it will look awful. Doesn't even have to be a full chip, just kind of dented. I had to have mine resprayed first then wait a month for it to cure then PPF

I got my PPF installed by a local guy, he does his work out of San Mateo.
If you would like his contact info shoot me a DM.
