    Fixing rock chips.

    Hey everyone
    Around this time of year I like to expect my car and see if everything is working properly. fix little things that may need to be fixed. Right now I am doing rock chips on my hood. What a fun thing to do when it's warm.

    Ha - I've never masked when doing rock chip fixes before.

    I always just tried to dab with the steadiest hand possible. But I'm no surgeon.

    PS: nice to finally see some weather for doing outside chores, though. Chores that don't involve snow shovels.

    Yeah I am over the snow for the year. I think that this has been one of the longer winters in recent memory. I had to put the tape so I could find the chip when I came back to do the clear. The two on the front of the hood turned out fine but the one on the top of the hood looks like crap, well to me anyways. I am very glad that I got now cracks in the windshield, some very small chips and that's it. It's suppose to get into the 20's in the next day or so which is awesome!
