    Stonechips on the rear bumper.

    How are you finding the stone chiping on the edge of the rear bumper?.The edge that is right behind the rear tyres.I seem to have developed a CDO syndrome, as everytime i come home in the car, i jump onto my hands and knees and check these bumper edges for chips.My car has only done 500 miles, but i seem to have collected a few chips to these edges here and there.I seem to hear a lot of stones being picked up by the rear tyres, and presumeably being flung against the wheelarch liners and bumper edges.Today i made a stensil out of card, then procceded to make an attempt in fabricating a stone guard out of thick clear vinyl.I did manage it, but it looked quite silly really, so i removed them.Guess i will put up with this,although i thought about making some stone guards out of thin black plastic.OOPS,there i go again.Suppose its just letting go of that absolute brand newiness?,regards, SIMON.

    I tell everyone this is even more important to have filmed than the front of the car. Why? Because the front may or may not get bad chips but it is is impossible to avoid behind the wheels if you dont have clear film protecting the area. My Turbo & F430 had clear film (3M/Venturefilm) installed on the day of delivery & I always have behind each wheel done on every sports car I buy. If you wait too long to get it done it wont look right afterwards because the film wont lay flat on the paint & you will see pock marks. Find a good film installer. Basically it's the same type of material that comes from the factory on the side of the car in front of the rear wheel but better quality. I actually had that factory piece removed and had one piece installed that covers that area but gets tucked into the wheel well & then runs along the rocker panel & gets tucked inside the door jam so you dont see film lines like the factory piece and it protects the rockers from chips & the inside jams by the sills from peoples shoes. No chips behind the wheels, no worrying just piece of mind. If you're not familiar w/ the material have a look here:

    I plan to get my newly painted rear lower valance covered with clear bra when its done. I did notice that the front leading edge is full of rock chips. That's definitely unavoidable.
