Paint repair

So, after clay barring my car yesterday I found quite a few paint chips and scuffs and things like that (i guess the dirt was filling them in lol). I was wondering if anyone out there could help me out with the best way to do this (as cheap as possible) and it still look really good, I'd really rather not take sand paper to it but if that's what it'll need then so be it. But I'd like to not be able to tell that there was ever anything there.

I have the same problem, bought a used car, and washed it for the first time last weekend, has about 20 small chips in the paint. Thinking about trying Chip Doctor or something like that.

Based on the pic yours looks like potential clear coat failure...if so it would need to be resprayed. You can try Meg's 205 by hand or by a DA polisher but I would suggest being very careful if it is clear coat failure .
