I have noticed on my car the driver side quarter panel edge that meets the backseat door keeps getting chipped on the edge of it. I attached a pic to show you what I am talking about. Does anyone know if there is a way or how to deter this from happening?

Are you routinely using the backseat or throwing something back there? Looks similar to what one of my kids had from throwing in their backpack and having zippers/clips hitting the paint. If it were from road debris, I wouldn’t expect it to be localized to that one particular spot. You could try touching it up and then covering that lip with come clear paint protection film.

I dont think it is the kids but I may try what you just mentioned. I compared it to the quarter panel on the other side and it has nothing. I did notice the quarter panel on the affected side has a little lip like it isnt flush with the door. it sticks out by just a hair. You'd never know unless you had a paint chip there.

Intersesting. When I initially started reading your post, I immediately thought of the '70s screaming chicken Trans Ams. Those cars had rear spoilers in front of the rear wheels. Chipping was specifically caused by a lack of mud flaps up front, resulting ib rock chips to the spoilers. If nothing else, I felt compelled to share that little bit of info. Food for thought. As for repair, I have had success with Dr. Color Ghip on several of my cars. It may seem like an unorthodox paint application at first, but it is effective and comes out perfect.

I'll check it out thanks. I don't really want mud flaps but thanks for sharing!
I wouldn't dare suggest mud flaps for our cars. lol I'm not big on mud flaps, but if you don't have the comparable contemporary Honda splash guards on your car, go for it. They are subtle and don't diminish the appearance. And, the Honda ones are cheap. You might already have them. If not, they just might do the trick. Good luck, man. Keep us posted.

That was my thought also.

which dr color chip package did you buy? also was it tedious to do, i am not an artist at all haha
Didn't use it on my Honda. Used it on a 1966 Mustang Fastback 2+2 Factory GT car, with 4 speed top loader and A code. A few chips on front of hood and roof, just behind the stainless around the front windshiekd.

Original black on black. When I ordered, I gave year model, etc. and it was Raven Black paint.
You pretty much dab the paint into he chips. Then, they give you this little thing to smooth it over.
Then, within a certain amount of time, you remove the excess, with some sort of product and buff.
Does it come out really nice, with barely being able to see the chips. Yes. Does it come out like a professional at
a body shop did it. No. But, it worked for me.

OK , Thank for Sharing ~ I have seen this Happen on few Cars & Trucks over the Years ..
Like Others have mentioned Splash Guards and Vehicles with Design that Enhances Abrasions . .
From Road - Debris . .

This what I have Observed over 40 Plus Years ~ That Doors that are In to Far or Out to Far
Cause this to Happen More .. If that Rear Door has been Adjusted Out 1/8 More - You'd have Had NO
Issues Ever ..

That said : I Be Interested in what Honda has to say about Door NOT Being in Correct Adjust ..
as No Other Honda's are doing this - Your Honda shouldn't be - Unless You Drive Dirt roads all Day
every Day . .
