Back from St Tropez & my Aero has picked up a number of stone chips - predictably between the gaps in the plastic protection film. Any suggestions as how to fill them? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I have used Chips Away in the past and found them to be quite good; although this does depend on the individual fanchise. Chips Away web site

The other option is that some paint companies now offer touch-up pens, which offer a better result than the old bottle and brish method. If you know the car brand of your paint, it would be worth calling them of Halfords, etc, to see if they offer a paint pen.

Thank you - the dealer said that Morgan use water based paint , implying that touch up kits don't work. Does this make a difference? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

it is my understanding that all manufacturers now have to use water based paints due to legislation. So, it would seem that the dealer may be leading you astray. I would do as suggested and call a paint expert (like chips away) to confirm <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />
