    Ive got quite alot of small scratches and chips on my car, mainly on the bonnet, what would be the best way to get rid of these?

    there was a good post on detail world, some chap used a touch-up stick on his bonnet, filled all the chip's with paint and then lacured them. After he wet and dry'ed the whole bonnet flat and you could barly see where the chip's where. Time consuming but cheaper than a re-painted bonnet
