Hello,
I've got a vehicle with a few stone chips that have a bit of orange starting; don't really want to paint the whole panel. Are there any shops that can apply a basic chip repair? I plan to get clear film applied to the panel after its been sorted out

thx

      Take some Sonax Fallout Cleaner or Car Pro Iron X and spray it on the spot, wipe off rust, apply touch up paint.

      I think most places would just paint the whole panel

        hmmm applying ironx (I already have another white vehicle and deal with rail dust constantly) seemed to turn the spots from orange to black or disappeared them completely. I can live with that! I'll give it a solid application right before getting clear film applied.

        thanks for the tip!
