    i use a sharpie on the front bumnper...with rock chips that hit and then u can see the orange/yellow foam...dabb the sharpie on it and then it wont be as noticeable.

    If your going to touch it up yourself try to sand and prep the area to be painted, with a sanding pen if its a small spot. Use enough touch up so that it is higher than the original paint. Assuming the weather is warm outside i would let it cure for a couple weeks, if not more, before you wetsand it. Then use a buffer and bring the shine back to the clearcoat.

    go to pep boys, buy the touch of kit sold by dubli color and buy the correct touch up paint and follow the directions very closely, i have used this and it works great,

    then go find those fucking kids and knock their teeth so far down their throat they have to pull their pants down to chew,

    If you have some oem touchup paint, use that. Take a toothpick and dab it in the paint. Touch the center of the chipped area, and let the area "pull" the paint off of the toothpick. Let each layer cure for, I'd say, a minimum of 4-5 hours before applying another coat. Once you have enough built up, and like drummer said, let it cure for at least a week, then you can go ahead and wetsand and polish

    I feel your pain. I just got an estimate of over $1400. to repair several chips and scratches to the back of my car. The labor alone is $999.
