Whats the best method to fix paint chips and scratches on the paint? I noticed so places that have paint chips most likely from stones or something. Also small scratches.

Thanks

Touch up paint is going to be your best bet. You want to be sure to cover all chips especially the one on sheet metal that do all the way through the paint.

Dr. Color Chip.
I've used Dr. Color Chip to repair a small chip on the roof. It blends well and does not leave excess paint or blobs on finished surfaces. You won't notice the repair from a few feet away, but if you look closely you can see it. The main thing is to use touch up paint or Dr. Color Chip to prevent any exposed metal from rusting.

For the record, I have snowflake white pearl paint and there is a disclaimer from Dr. Color Chip that it won't match 100% since it's a tricoat.
