its difficult to say the least, especially if you want it to look like it has never been chipped.
I painted my 71 Triumph and so I have the tools and knowledge to fix chips but it would mean filling the chip with a 2 part glazing compound, kind of like bondo but a lot more fluid, trying to sand it down without sanding thru the surrounding finish, Use an artist air brush and touch up the chip with the color coat and then clear coat and buff out.

do a search, someone else on here shows another procedure for small chips

too much work for small chips

Thanks for the reply! Sounds like a lot of very careful work which I may not have the patience for lol. I fellow friend at work said that he had a shop take care of touch ups for $150. I may look into it but ill want to see his results first since this is mah bay

Check out your local detailers, mine just asked me to pick up the touch up paint from the dealer and then he took care of the chips, i believe under 200 for when my car was egged.

Once you master the technique Dr. Colorchip will make chips like that disappear.
