        Chipsaway wont do the bonnet, they will do eveything else. Cant remember their reasoning for not doing the bonnet but it requires a re-spray if you want to get rid of them.

              aqualpel. my past 2 cars ive spent alot of time, cleaning up, waxing up and aquapelling my cars. There is a noticed imprivement against stone chips, also you dont get tar on your paintwork which is an absolute *****! Has the added effect of being able to drive down the autobahn when its raining and not need wipers!! you still get chips, but less of em. only got one on my SRi in a year and 2 months driving.

                  How much do you think it will cost to get my front wing completely re-sprayed? It's bloody peppered, too many little chips to count! (Arden)

                            Costs about £150 to £200 to have a full bonnet re-spray. I had a film over the front of mine called ventureshield which stops stone chips, worked very well.
