Default Got hit by a rock

Crap!

While tooling down the interstate in the PT a rock hit the hood. The hood wasn’t dented but a couple of chips of paint were gouged out of the front of the hood.
I plan to get some touch up paint but wanted your input before I go to the dealer for the paint. Is there any thing that I need to know, a better choice?

Thanks

Van

I posted this on another thread and it might come in handy for you....

QUICK TIP

I've had both my Corvette and Cruiser touched up in the last few months. Tomorrow, I'm taking the wife's KIA in to have the front right quarter panel touched up before she sees what I've done to her new car (another story). All the cars were done way cheaper than a paint shop and expertly done. There are guys that go around to the car dealers and touch up scratches and small dents that come on new cars and the cars that the dealer takes in trade. These guys work out of a truck and carry hundreds of car colors and can make and match what they don't have. I have two dealers near me where these guys set up Tuesday's Wednesday's and Thursday's and fix and paint the dealers cars and anyone off the street can take their personal car and have it done at their location. They fill, sand, prime, paint and clear coat your car in a matter of a couple hours sometimes between other jobs, sometimes they spare a guy to work just on your car. The job is perfect and as I said way less than a paint shop. Check it out in your area the next time your looking for a touch-up of a small rock chip, dent or scratch.

Carey,
Are these just a group of local guys; or a national organization?

Frank,

Don't know if it's local or national. They call themselves "Colors on Parade" The Original Body Shop on Wheels.
