ok so my car on the rocker panel or whatever the hell it is called, the paint is chipping, and i want a quick way to touch it up or something and want advice



theres the piece im talking about, today i looked at it, its not rusting, its just was air bubbles when it was repainted as theres a space there, but going onto the rear quarter and down its solidly painted. so what can i do to make it look good, sand paint n clear, or any temp thing i can do?

suggestions would be awesome, im thinking a small brush after sanding to apply primer and LG paint and itll be aight?

That looks like the kind of problem that is only going to get worse, propably a flaw in the primer on the side skirt., or countless other paint chemistry issues. You could touch it up with touch up paint, then clear over it, will look better and help seal it, and possibly slow any further damage down, but it's only a bandaid fix, this looks like something that will have to be sanded down to the surface and re-primed and painted.

I've got the same problem going on. I always blamed it on road construction. Whenever I turn the radio off I can hear the gravel and debris hitting the car and I just cringe...

Is it just the area below the door or has it reached the door too?
