All the spots are dents, not dust.
Yes! That is much clearer! Thank you very much!

Yes, my first car had some pitting in the front from gravel or something and I think that much of the black coating on the metal trim was in the process of peeling off. I would think that a paint job would fix the front, although it may slowly get damaged again. While Aerohead says that the front ends are usually pretty aerodynamic, and Insights should have the best, if you ever decided to try to make it more aerodynamic, that would also protect the bumper.

As for the trim, guys, can he paint that with Plasti-dip?
