I have a 3 inch(L) x 1 inch(W) straight line of pure paint lost on my front right fender near the wheel well/mud flap. The paint has been slowly chipping and peeling off for the past year. The damaged area would be too costly to repair properly for such a small area. I was thinking about putting vinyl sticker bomb sheet to prevent and stop further paint lost. I would like to have an honest opinion, thoughts or additional course of action I could take to fix this eye sore.

As always,
Thanks.

DIY paint repair. Pep boys has a paint match selection where you enter your car info and they can order you a can of your oem color. If you do a poor job. Which you'll probably do fine proceed with sticker bomb. My 2cents. Hehe.

I have several cans of A20 paint and clear coat. I did do my own paint job on my grill, but that was just a simple full coverage. Touching up requires me to sand the general area and if I only sand that area the clear coat/paint won't look the same as the factory coat. So in my mind, if I where to DIY it, I have to sand blast the whole fender. Sorry if my thoughts aren't translating correctly to my fingers, another problem rose from the Versa and flustered at the moment.

If you have luck like mine, just wait til someone hits you lol. My fender got bent when my car fell off the jack n landed on my tire, I couldn't afford my $500 deductible so I let it go but then dec 27th a plow took out the front end and everything is fixed now lmao! Just my two cents, I know it prolly won't help you but maybe you'll get a laugh out of it. :)

The original crack in paint was about 2in (L) x .5in (W) a year ago.

Hahaha, in the back of my head I'm always thinking "Man I hope I hit a deer" that way I can get CF hood, and perhaps aftermarket bumper and lights lol.

if that is the front fender just leave it be and put away a couple of dollars in a jar. By the time that is bad you can afford a used good condition red fender and then it's just a bolt on affair. There are a million V's out there and plenty of red ones.

Oh my God! I swore I was the only one with a similar thought process! It'll give me a reason to get the sport package front bumper and a CF hood!

Oh I definitely know what you mean lol. I had a deer hit me! I was driving 65 home from work them bam! I thought I hit something but then I remembered I was paying attention so I couldn't have hit anything. So I pull over and my back drivers side door has a dent n a long deep scratch. I'm like wtf! Then I turned around and drove back a little and saw the deer (not a pretty sight but idc lol) and I was like tell ur friends lol. But I thought it was nuts, how can a deer hit the side of the car while I'm goin 65, talk about perfect timing lol.
