    Default Stone chips every where

    Just finished cleaning the outside of the car -
    Rinse
    Wheel wash
    2 bucket wash
    mags stage 2 polish
    mags stage 3 wax

    It looks awesome, however I noticed a hell of a lot of stone chips and marks I did not know were there when I bought it a month ago.

    Can I get rid of these chips by touching them up or is it easier to get a front end re spray?

    I have used these before to do a major bodywork repair cheap, was very impressed with the result.

    Im just wondering if I am gonna pay £100 to get rid of the chips with them, then I may as pay the extra for a full respray.

    I suppose I should get a quote for both.

    I am guessing there is no good ways of doing it yourself?
