Default what to do about chips and rust spots on hood...

my car hasn't even made it to the 4 yr mark yet.

yet there are a few chips that started off as minor but now have become almost the size of a penny and oxidation has set in like a bitch. is there anything under the warranty that covers this or is it considered road wear?

i washed/waxed and sealed my car before winter hit and thought that would be enough to get through to spring where i could touch it up.

i have a paint chip almost as big.

what i plan to do once it turns warmer, touch it up with the subaru paint. then letting it dry for a week or so. get some 2000 grit wet/dry sand paper, wetsand it lightly down so that its even, no pressure at all!. then take meguairs swirl and polish, and polish up the area, sealant, then wax.

or try

sounds like a plan. it just seems like there should be some kind of warranty against ****ty paint like this. it's one thing to get nicks and dings from rocks but this full on peeled, without a dent.

1)Go visit a friend in a gated community.
2)When the gate arm goes up, move forward as usual.
3)If the guard can't keep her finger on the button, it'll drop down and put a bloody big dent in your hood.
4)Security agency replaces hood.

I'm in the process of doing this now... if everything goes as planned I'll have a new hood sometime this month. Aluminium, perhaps? hmmm

But yea, the paint on the front of my hood is chipped to hell now... I hate it

The Eastwood Company sells a paint chip repair kit which includes a tiny little sanding pad and sandpaper to match, with instructions. Then use the appropriate touchup paint, and follow up with Eastwood's clear-coat blending paint in a rattle can.
