Re: Rock Chips...

I take filler, and just take my finger and kinda drag ot over the chip to fill it, then get a paint pen, or pen/brush combo from autozone. cover it up, and wipe it away with your finger, keep doing this and everytime you wipe, a little bit of the black paint stays each time. what this does it keeps it from looking like you filled a chip which is what the paint pen will do, and aviod from over dose which is what the brush will do.

Just go to the dealer and get your touch up paint. It sucks but if were going to drive them everyday we have to expect it.
