The paint along the front of my hood, hidden by my bug deflector is worn and unsightly. Any one know anything, short of painting it - not in the budget - to conceal it. I was thinking something along the lines of like some type of tape similar to what one would put on their rocker panels...Any suggestions are appreciated.

Check your yellow pages for your local sign and decal shop. They'll have stuff like that and can probably do a fair job of color matching for you too.
A more expensive option would be a bra.

Is it chipped or flaking off. Have any pictures? There a few things out there for rock chips. Dr. Color Chip.

It's not chipped, its like faded/worn off down to the bare metal. I will take a pic tomorrow.

i got some tape from a sign shop supplier. it comes in so many colors and sizes it was hard to choose. the place i bought from is in seattle. most sign tape is good for aboue 5 years or so.

I went to a sign shop this morning and for about 50 bucks I can get some black vinyl to go on there. Going to use about a 2 in wide strip. I shouldn't be too out of place once I replace the chrome bezels and hood latches with black ones.
