Lots of rock chips :( I'm sad now

This topic has been covered many many times and I've really passed by it everytime I saw a post untill yesterday.

So I detail washed the car and waxed yesterday (pretty much spent the day cleaning every crack of the Camaro) and holy cow, soo many rock chips randomly!

Most of the rock chips are around the gills on the sides, so bad that the paint is beginning to look fadded from far away (terrible).

Its soo bad that the car needs repairs soon. I thank god I never painted my gfx kit as the front of the rocker panel looks like it got hit with sand paper (front wheel wells).

My question is, is there places in town that will likely be able to fix the rock chips without having to repaint a whole panel? I have no plans on repairing the side rocker panels as I expected them to be damaged as time went on but the IOM paint, I just cant let it go on...

I wonder who else is in the same situation as me.... I'm a daily driver so its something I knew was coming, I just didnt realize it would be so soon!

For the record I have about 100 tiny rock chips not including the hundreds specalled along those side gills.

Its discussed a lot and it can be fixed... have you watched this video yet? Ryan did a great job showing the process and the Langka system is pretty user friendly:

Here is around the gills. That lighter colour isnt reflection, its non existant paint after a fresh coat of wax.
