This past weekend I noticed that I picked up a stone chip in the middle of the hood. It ended up taking out a very tiny portion of the clearcoat but it didn't affect the paint.

Does anybody have any ideas about the best way to fix it?

Order some touch up paint from the dealer and use a tooth pick to use as little paint as possible. I am still waiting for my paint from them, the chip is almost 1mm in diameter, it just kills me to see it [:(!]

I am confused. I thought he stated it was only thru the clearcoat and did not affect the paint so do you still use touch up paint or are you referring to the clear coat paint?
