I'm really thinking it would be easier to just get the car wrapped than worrying about the paint quality. I'm finding chips in the weirdest spots, just found some on top of the trunk lid and top of the rear arches last time I washed it.

You can make a car from its rallying heritage but you can't take the rally heritage out of the car.. perhaps your car thinks it's on a special WRC stage, throwing rocks and crud onto its hips and boot...

There are no serious gravel fire roads here, just 3 construction sections in a 15 minute commute all full of dump trucks.


At least fire road WRC driving would be fun and the chips would be expected then.

This has crossed my mind a few times. Let's assume a quality wrap was applied. Is the original paint that shoddy that, removing the wrap could cause damage?

A good quality wrap probably would pull some paint off, clear coat at least.
