    Default Stone chipped bumper

    Hi just washed my black signum today and found 2 small stone chips on the front bumper. The chips are down to white paint. Anybody have any idea's how to sort these marks out.
    Any ideas are welcome and appreciated.

    Yeah shan it's a trip to chips away I'm afraid........on the plus side our local chips away guy is excellent aswell same as Will's

    When I eventually have time to do the stone chips on mine myself that's when I'll be able to write a "how to" but at the mo it's a question of finding the time

    I had to have the entire front end of mine repainted last year due to the stone chips. Looks a mess again already. Mind you, I do over 500 miles a week and always seem to be following gritters home at this time of year......

    I always catch a Gritter just under the M25 Thorney junction. At this point I still have around 30 miles to get home.

    Choice 1, Sit behind the bluddy thing till it turns off?

    Choice 2, Back off till there's a nice gap in front of me, drop it into 4th and boot it till I'm past?

    Choice 3, Take to the Hard Shoulder!!
