Rock Chip Prevention

I never had an issue with my GT but my GT 500 seems to be getting tiny rock nicks in the area right behind the front wheels just under the GT500 side stripes before the door crease.

Couldn't notice at first given the angle and distance but I was cleaning it and saw that there were quite a few tiny nicks that caused me to be concerned.

I managed to touch up and buff out most of them but I worry that it will continue to happen and possibly ruin my side stripes.

Does anyone else have the same issues as me?

Anyone have any advice or any good front mud flap products that take away from the look of the car?

I use Roadwrap I made the mistake of buying the 18 inch wide stuff, but the 6 inch stuff I think will be better.

Never had this issue on my 11...................don't see painting the rockers on the 14 as progress !!
So, after reading several posts on the SVTP site, praising them, I mounted Roush side & rear splitters, & Jeager Bros. front splash guards....... ( no pics @ this point )
The side splitters were no problem, push pin mounting.
Drilling holes for the rear splitters was a little unnerving. The splash guards were another 40 second push pin mount.......We will see how they perform.
