    Other than a respray, how would the panel deal with stone chips like these on their bonnet?

    Everyone edits immediately after I post, Doh!!!

    Personally I'd fill the bits in with colour and, after you reach a level, just try to polish it in. Bear in mind that it will always show, though if it's done carefully, only to those who knew it was there in the first place.

    The only other options are "blending it in" which can be done by the people who do this for a living (make sure you pick a good one) or ignoring it.

    when you say "Fill it with colour", do you mean using the touch up paint that looks similar to nail varnish?
    thanks :)

    I got the Chipex kit which is similar to the above and was happy with the results.
