An extra thick triangle shaped layer of clear coat was used on the front side of the rear fenders to protect the paint from rock chips. However, the paint has the wear that comes with 9,700 miles in the form of some small rock chips in that location and on the front of the car. All fenders are undercoated with black rubberized finish. Please contact me at 308 440-8875 for additional information.
