    ROCK CHIPS! LIGHT SWIRLS!

    Hey guys, owner of a black 14' rex,

    While washing my car, i take much precision and pay careful attention to proper washing techniques, I am a frequent washer, 3-4 times a week. I polish and wax my car every 1-2 weeks as well. I love detailing my car inside and out.

    However, my brand new wrx with only 6k miles has a ton of rock chips, a few across the body panel and many on the front hood and bumper region.. Getting really sick of these rock chips. Is there any way to fix the many chips my car has? and how can i prevent it? ALSO, being black, my car has a few swirl marks scattered around the body and light scratches. Drives me insane when i park my car under the garage lighting when i come home from work at night.

    Thanks guys!
    Much appreciation,
    Dylan

    Well i would say a clay bar with ample amounts of clay lube. But the rock chips are tough.

    Why would you polish your car SO much. That's NOT a good thing, IMHO.

    What polish?

    Also - Any good wax should make it a month easy.

    Yeah i think excessive polishing is a bit much. Also you should clay bar prior to polish that way you seal the paint. I would say using a water treatment to have the water sheet off once wet.
