Not my fake gas cap :(

Washed my car and saw the black paint on my faux gas cap cracked a bit.



Should I even attempt plastidip? I want the tri bar pony to stay chrome and masking it off would be tricky. Is there some cheap matte black touch up pen? I don't know what would be the best choice but it's a bummer looking at it

I really think I should try fixing it because it looks like it might peel off even more. And even if it's a small chip it's chrome next to flat black its pretty noticeable

I painted mine to match the rest of the emblems on my car. It's different and doesn't look half bad with all matching emblems.

Good luck buffing that tiny area. You can put paint on it but no matter how thin you go, they'll be a line and if you try to buff it it'll shine up and be satin at best if not gloss. I'm not a fan of markers but you might get away with a sharpie pen.

Ha it's like my eyes zeroed in on it as soon as I walked around the back. If I can't get a good touch up then a CDC decklid is looking pretty good

Isn't your car still under warranty? There would be no reason to consider something on the back of the car normal wear and tear, like a rock chip would be on the front.
I wouldn't be too surprised if your dealer just ordered you a new one.....

Nah it's long out of warranty and I believe they would need to sell me the entire trunk lid
