Default Problems with paint chips

Does anyone know where I can get some rocker panels for my impala? I live on gravel roads and am having problems with paint chips.

Or is there something else I can do?

That'* really funny you should mention that. I have some REALLY bad paint chips on my car. I have no clue how they've gotten so bad, but hearing that you're having the same problem makes me think it might be an issue with the paint and primer GM used. Interesting...

Well, I just bought the car a few months ago. Haven't had much for problems yet except what was caused by stones.
