The deep dents are from wheeling but the paint chips are from driving on highway. I drive from St Louis to Chicago almost every 3 weeks.
Being behind semi trailers doesn't help the situation either.

Re: Paint chipped on hood last year.. now rusted?!

oh ok. About a year ago in my civic I was driving on the highway home from school next to this school bus. I see all the kids looking at me and then one stands up and chucks something at my car and hits the roof. I was like what the crap and got behind the bus right away before they got off the ramp. Followed the bus back to their school and it was a christian high school baseball team. I got out and confronted the kid and he was like, im sorry it was just an apple, im sorry. lol I dont know what it was but I was pissed.

Re: Paint chipped on hood last year.. now rusted?!

I just had to fix the same thing. Mine was deep too. I sanded it down, then added a little bit of body filler due to how deep it was. There is no way paint will build up to that level. Then sanded it smooth, and with blue tape sectioned my repair in about a 4" square. roughed up that whole area, sprayed on some self-etching primer. Added 2 coats of factory color paint. un masked and lightly feathered it in to the rest of my hood. If you reallly look hard you can tell but it blends pretty well.

If you need body color paing any good automotive paint shop can mix it and put it in a spray can for you so you don't need a gun to shoot it.
