Paint Chips and touchups

What does everybody use for paint chips and scratches? I've got a pretty big chip on the part that holds the windshield in. What should I do?

+1 for www.automotivetouchup.com

I discovered a dime sized chip on my hood. They got me the small bottles out quick and I fixed it. '97 Portofino Red here. I ended up putting a coat of clearcoat on the fix as well... I almost wish I haden't since that little spot now seems a little over-glossy. Try it without the clearcoat first IMO (if you don't have clearcoat to begin with).

I used the little bottles. Several light coats, follow the directions and its pretty easy.
