Terrible Chips in paint

Tacomas must I say do NOT have the best paint. I waxed and clay bar-ed my truck today and I swear I think I saw about 12 chips (normal on the hood) but there was this big one on the driver side door corner.

If I get the Paint from OEMPaints.com will it still show up?

Huh, that's interesting. I guess the only thing good on the hell hole Mazda, I, accidentally of course, slam my zipper end (nice little hunk of metal) into the paint almost daily and have absolutely no problems. In fact, I just fell onto the car the other day with the rivet of my jeans first and not a thing happened. But then you take into account all the other crap and the car is still crap...wow that was one hell of a tangent.

They like rock chips or something???

I use Langka paint chip repair (and OEM paint).
http://www.langka.com/

It's a do-it-yourselfer kit that is perfect if you don't have a whole lot of time or $$ to fix chips. With a little practice - you can make some light chips/scuffs disappear (pending paint color). Deeper ones aren't as easy.
Metallic paint colors are harder than plain paint colors.

I've used this on our corvette and made certain areas totally disappear. I've gone over previous owners chip repairs and made them look 80% better. On the truck, I've repaired a deep chip on the hood - but you can still find it, it's not that bad. The metallic paint makes is harder to blend in. Another repair on my door is impossible to find.

The neat part about this Langka stuff.... you can repair the chip and if you're not happy with the results, you can literally clean off the original repair and start all over again. Practice and fine tuning the technique makes a big difference.

Gotcha. See mine would live on the streets a lot of its miles and not so much on the freeway but I try to stay away from lifted trucks with no mudflaps and big rigs with open tops so I should be good.
