Paint Chip

Just bought my 09 in Oct., I live in the North w/ rocks and salt during winter, and the color of my truck is Black Sand Pearl. I washed my truck this weekend, and looked to see at least 10 small chip specks, and one 1/8 dime sized chip on my hood. Maybe I just notice it more because it's black or because this color is more apt to chip, but WTF. I've live here my whole life, and no other vehicle that I've owned has ever chipped this bad. Not even close. I'm anal to begin w/ about my vehicles and know that there just really small specks, but multiple that by 8 winters. I'll be driving around a freaking dairy cow.

Thougths from the gallery, particularly BSP owners.

I feel for you on this, it's a real pisser.
Try to fix if you can, for me the outcome never looks like it should, you can also try a deflector of some type during this time of year, or use that 3M clear coating to help.
No matter what and I hate to say this but you are gonna get the chips. Everytime I sit and detail I see something new, I am to the point that it is something that I need to live with. I fix them as good as I can, and go on.
I know this doesn't help, but believe me "I feel for you".

Don't follow other cars/trucks so closely after they put the gravel/sand down.

No offense, but I really don't like the look w/ the sport hood scoop. BUT, I guess if it works then I should give it a try. Thanks

That's the kicker! I don't travel close to other car/trucks at all. I think most of the stuff is coming from oncoming traffic.

Yeah, that certainly contributes. I'm surprised that you've never had problems on other vehicles. Paint chips and broken windshields are inevitable on any vehicle around here. I looked at a white '05 before I bought my '09 and it looked like the guy had driven directly behind a snowplow dropping gravel for several miles... it had terrible paint chipping and oxidation.

I hate rock chips.. but i think i have a more realistic view now where i must accept reality.. rock chips on a daily are inevitable..

However, if you drive a collectable car (e.g. NSX, FERRARI, etc..) just clear bra the entire front.. hood too.. but on a tacoma, doesnt' make too much sense to clear bra the entire front as a job like this costs $2k+ for a good install.
