Just a quick question. Your 2005 Dutch Star came with Diamond Shield on the front. Are the rock chips in the Diamond Shield or in the paint other than the front?

I learned this from an old guy who did body work and repainting on cars. Rip a match out of a match book and use the ripped end (not the end that lights) to slightly dip in the paint and use it to fill in the chipped area. Do not use it like a paint brush, just dab it on a very little at a time. Let the paint dry and then dab on more paint until the filled in area is smooth with the surrounding area. I tried it and it works much better than a paint brush. Of course it works better on a horizonal surface, but with practice it works on a vertical surface too.

I hope you have the paint sample bottles that came with your Dutch Star.
