find out your colour code and then you can use a touch up pen (apply using a needle, not the brush)

However if they are alot bigger

The best bet would be a resprayed bonnet. it depends how much you want it done

I think you will always see a stone chip unless it is done proffesionally or you hold a very steady and patient hand :lol:
if there are quite alot of them it may be worth you're while calling around for a few quotes.
