    Default Rock chips

    Down low, just behind the door is an area that's painted black on my '16 Z-06. It's covered in white specks from gravel hits. What do anybody recommend that I do about this?

    Because of the winder fenders on the Z06, they are extremely prone to stone chip damage. They aerodynamic package that includes the running boards under the rocker panels, are helpful, however, the best protection is XPEL Clear Film paint protection. It's a self healing film that protects the paint.

    I had Expel put on those vents as well as the rocker panels and the hood and backs of mirrors. Highly recommend it.
