Get the touch up paint from Ford, it has a pen side for small marks.

I wish I had before pics but the process which worked the best for me was the touch up pen(from ford) then the infomercial clear coat pin that's fills all paints chips, sorry I can't think of the name

Very serious.. Check in the warranty book that came w your car.. I had a couple chips on my hood that I noticed just a couple months after I bought mine and that's what prompted me to look at the paint warranty.. BUT I never went through w it.. Never looked into it either.. Just read it in the book.. Says something like 1 year warranty against airborne debris.. It goes into detail about it.. I'd take your book down there and show them where it states this and go from there

Sweet. This is news to me. I guess it pays to actually read the manuals, huh? Lol

My plan was to wait till closer to the 1 year mark and then do it in case more chips popped up... But I put it of too long.. Had the car 1 year and 3 months or so.. Only have one small one on the bumper and hood..

My car came with a 1/4 scratch at the bottom of the door... I'm anal, but I would prefer touch-up done by myself rather than having my car ripped apart and losing my factory finish

I just bought touch up paint yesterday from oreillys for $8. It has the pen on one side and the brush on the other. Worked like a dream on my front bumper. Color matches perfectly. They had an entire row of ford paints. They could have had your color and you would have saved 20 bucks

Re: Paint chip

The new car warranty does not cover rock chips in the paint.

Warranty would not cover something like this...
