How to fix chips in paint.

Is there anyway to fix a super small chip on my hood without getting the whole thing repainted? I know about the clear bra things so no need to mention those. I just want to know if there is anything I can do because it is bugging the hell out of me! Thanks!

Go down to your dealer get touch up paint then use some langka http://www.langka.com/affiliates.php . Does a very good job.

I would get the Dupont or the factory touch up paint. If it doesnt have a clear coat in it, get that too. dab it with a qtip not the paint brush. Let dry for a day or so then polish if need be, you probably wont notice it unless up close

Another popular way of applying the paint is a toothpick

there is a national chain called chip doctor or something, ive heard they do great work, and if you can see if once they fix you dont pay for it. check below for a system, but your dealers body shop should know what im talking about. i was in the shop the other day the body man actually told a customer to check this chain out because his damage was minor and it would save him money to go to the chain
