    Advice on stone chips on my roof please

    Ill get a picture as soon as but as I was giving the motor a good wash last night, I noticed a few stone chips on the roof with 1 of them looking like its starting to oxidise very slightly, I take it ill have to get a full respray to completely remove this?

    Or could I just get one of those mobile stone chip guys out?

    You could try to do it yourself, you will need some touch up paint and a size 1 brush.

    As above after a few coats and its dried, rubbing it off with some fine wet and dry. This will dull the paint in which you need a cutting polish to bring back the shine.

    Really it depends on how big the chip is and weather its noticible.

    There is an excellent guide on detailingworld which will give you more detail (excuse the pun lol)
