Question Chip Resistant paint/additive

I need a chip resistant paint or additive to add to paint that will keep my rear wheel flares from getting chipped to sh!t. Any suggestions?

What we use up here is called Rock Guard. Might be under a different name in the US!!

It's gotta be smooth. Some of that stuff is rough textured. Not sure if what you're talking about is or not.

There's 2 different ways chip resistant paint is applied.
#1 under the paint.
#2 on top of the paint.

Both have their advantages and disadvantages.
M.A. is right about the rough texture finish..

Another option that has only been around for a couple of years in the aftermarket.
Is a new product called "clear chip guard" (or something like that)
Basically it's a flexible clear decal.
Applied over your new paint finish, many aftermarket installers can install this, and it's not really expensive

Gee, it seems having it on a trailer all the time didn't help your car, so what makes you think it would help mine?

The factories have used a similar thing like what Marty is talking about. It stays put when you put it on, but the do yellow after a while. It stands out on light colors, but not so much on dark.

it is like window tint only clear and goes on over the paint. I saw a demo of the stuff and have seen it on some cars, it is almost impossible to see it and it looks good not sure of its long turm UV stability (not exactly sure what material they use for it) so I can't say how it will look in 5-10 years of sun but what I have seen so far is good.

I wonder if a paint like we used on the Honeycombs would work...hmmmmmm it has a flex agent in it to guard against chipping?? I'll have to find out about that my flairs are looking crappy too.
