    Hi,
    Sometime back while taking a turn a stone hit my car right below the left front door. There i got a dent, but what surprised me more was the paint from that part has peeled off. I have never seen paint getting peeled of a vehicle. This is something new and probably something i didn't ever expected. Is it something really to worry about something which may happen ?
    Below is the image, please advise.

    I never imagined of paint peeling off from a Fiat car! This is a new information!
    This happened with my Nano though, when it rubbed against a concrete pillar at the bottom-rib. The thin film kept peeling-off further. I had put a black self-adhesive strip bought from a auto-shop. I put it on both sides and it blended with other black parts of my papaya-coloured Nano. The strip is holding like this for more than two years.

    If the metal has flexed or stretched the chances of paint peeling like this is higher. Is paint peeling off from any other part or was it peeling off before the stone hit?

    @nkrishnap no it was not peeling off before the stone hit.
