As your car ages and spends more time on the road, it becomes increasingly likely that it will suffer multiple minor paint chips. This could be from small rocks bouncing up off the road, a minor brush with a parking pole, or an errant toy thrown by a small child.

At first one or two small paint chips might seem like a minor cosmetic imperfection. However, as time goes on, these compromised areas can start to foster rust problems.

You see, your car’s paint job isn’t just a cosmetic enhancement. It’s also a protective layer, protecting the auto body components underneath. If the base metal of the car is exposed to the caprices of weather and things like road salt and rain, the chipped area could start to develop a rust spot. As time goes on, even a tiny area of rust can spread under the paint and even compromise the vehicle on a functional level.
