    Rock chips on hood

    So I have a bunch of "pinhole" rock chips all over my hood and headlight covers. Any tricks or ideas on how to get rid of them or make them less noticeable? Thanks

    Ugh.... you too.... my car was perfect till I went for a ride down by the beach. I picked up some new road rash on my front end that I wasn't expecting. Guess the roads haven't been travelled on enough yet for the debris to be knocked away, not enough beach goers to be using this road so early in the year..... oh well.... from 5 feet you can't even tell. Maybe in a few years I'll get the whole front redone.... Not worth worrying about as long as I can just enjoy the car.

    Though if there are ways to minimize their appearance i'd of course be open to try em.

    I used touch up paint in about 409384509820348 places on my front end. the previous owner must have liked tailgating 18 wheelers. I've noticed NBM cars seem to have more chips than other colors in general. pretty sad since it's one of the nicest colors.

    I hope to respray my front end some day.

    I have heard that Dr. Color Chip works excellent. Apparently it eliminates the traditional "blobs" and paint brush marks of traditional touch-up paint by using a special additive in the formula.

    I have yet to try it, but I definitely will be ordering some soon for both cars.
