    confused Stonechips

    My SRi is Metro Blue but being dark shows up all the swirls of the day. The worst is stonechips though just behind the front wheels ie on the lower wing, bottom edge of front doors and sills. When you polish it up it looks not bad but when it's wet it looks like its been shotb lasted. Whats the best way to get rid of this? I've tried t-cut and a renovating polish but they dont seem to cut deep enough and i dont want to go to deep. It wont really show up in a pic though! Any advice welcome!

    Im afraid to say stone chips need to be touched up. Polishing will not remove them as they will have gone through the clear coat.

    Always think mudflaps are a thing from the past but they would stop this sort of damage!?

    Good idea I read on here was to use a wooden cocktail stick.
