One thing I've considered doing (while putting clear bra on all the typical areas that get chipped with sand and rocks kicked up by the tires) on our new car is putting thin strips of clear bra on the lip of the fender wells, extending slightly onto the exposed surface and wrap around onto the lip that's rolled into the fender well. Seems like an area I touch up paint regularly.
Good mud flaps also help a bunch to save the lower panels and rocker panels from damage (that turns to rust).
I would also remove the fender flares on a new vehicle and clear bra where the fender flare contacts the paint. It works great. Been doing it behind license plates and such on other vehicles, where a bolt on part will rub through the paint eventually.
And if I ever move back to the salt belt and have a new vehicle, I'll try to keep up with treating the undercarriage and typical dirt/mud trap areas on the underside of the body with Fluid Film/woolwax/Krown, something.
