    Paint Cracks/Damage from Rolling Fenders

    So when my fenders were rolled some paint got damaged/cracked/chipped off towards the inside of the fenders on the left side (non-visible).

    I really don't want any rusting and just want to protect it against corrosion or further chipping. I put nail polish on the spots where it chipped off but nothing major. Just some "band aids".

    Any ideas on how I could prevent further chipping and damage?

    Thanks!

    If it's just on the inside I would probably just plasti-dip it.

    You can also get a little touch up paint thing for like 10 bucks and then use that. I got one at the dealer for a couple of chips I have.

    For a good long hold, you're gonna want to make sure all lifting paint is off. Mask off the area you don't want repaired and sand the bad spot down to a feather edge. Give it a coat of sealer primer, than a few coats of reputable spray paint. Also since it's in a wheel well, it may not hurt to go over that with a stone guard of sorts. This will give you the best DIY results.
    You can get the nail polish off quick with acetone.

    Hope this helped. Best of luck!
