I've heard good things of Dr. ColorChip. That's what I'll be using when I get some extra $$$

Here's a link to their site--->Dr.ColorChip Custom Automotive Touch-Up Paint Kit - Dr. ColorChip: Automotive Paint Chip Repair Systems

You can't remove them, but you can make them less visible...

Check my thread here:

For a good quick hide-and-go take a crayon of the same color and fill them in. Heat makes the wax melt to the chip and kinda form to it. Turtle wax has these colored waxes that come with chip sticks, same concept as a crayon. (just don't use the wax, its garbage!)
Also, some touch up paints have a ball-point chip filler.

I don't know how much I would agree with this, only because I would think that the first time you go to buff or wax, it would pull the crayon off or wax.

have you don't it and had experience with it? It sounds like an interesting way to do it, but not sure how it would work..

my buddy has used a crayon to fill his chips before, but then again its a 13yr old white lumina that he doesnt really care too much about. it does hide the chips though.
