    Today at the car wash I noticed a Quarter size chip in my paint :eek: The high pressure from the nozzle removed a bit more paint as I thought I was washing bird shit off my hood! No dent or anything like that "from a rock"... WTF

    What are my options?....
    And how soon do I need to take care of this?

    Take it to a body shop and get it done, I wouldn't imagine it would be to pricey especially being super white. Bird shit has some gnarly reactions with paint so I avoid parking under trees, light poles ect.

    Your gonna want to take care of it ASAP so it doesnt start to collect moisture and rust.

    I would get it done as soon as possible , not sure how the weather is there but after snow or rain start collecting its likely to rust or create more bubbles
