its already been repaired, as it was once almost cracked all the way in half. when repaired, parts were filled. thing has been brought back to life several times. between primer and paint, there are several coats underneath. so rock chips are exposing those repaired areas.

used to use plastidip on everything. while great for what it is, i dont like the texture of it. and since its rubbery, its a PITA to keep clean, everything sticks to it. i have no problem repainting the lip once or twice a year. no biggie for me. in fact, i wish i could repaint my entire front end on a yearly basis.

also, the last time i repainted it, i did it all in one day, rushing to get it on the car for Subiefest. while it was cold outside, hardly any drying time, it was already screwed to begin with..
