Default Best place in western for rock chip repair

Are there any good places around here that can repair rock chips well without having to entirely repaint the part in question?

I'm guessing I'll end up having to repaint the whole front bumper, but there are rock chips along the side from where the previous owner ran wheels with the tires sticking out too much. I would prefer not having to get all four doors repainted. That big of an area would probably be noticeable as having been painted at a different time than the surrounding body panels not to mention being fairly expensive.

So, any suggestions/experience?

Colors On Parade does great work with dent removal,but I wasn't too impressed with their paint chip repair.It was no different than what you'd do yourself with dabbing touch-up paint on the chip.
I really don't know that there's any process that would turn out really well.There's a system that has ads in the back of many auto magazines that consists of basically blobbing paint into the chip,then wetsanding it smooth once it dries.I don't think that would work too well either,but I don't have any experience with it.

Yeah, I've seen people suggest the wet sand method on forums, but I was hoping to find some place that's experienced in rock chip repair. I could probably do it, but then again I don't want to completely fuck it up and have to repaint the whole thing.

Just an update. There's a local guy in Harrisonburg called Chris Scott who I was recommended to by a detailer. I'll take some before and after pictures when I get him to fix the chips.

Advantix in Mt Crawford does great work. So does Curb Appeal in Harrisonburg. I'd check em both out and get estimates, but they both do excellent work.

Got Curb Appeal in Harrisonburg to repaint the front bumper and hood to get rid of the nasty rock chips. They did an excellent job matching the paint.

I'd forgotten about this thread.
Last week we had a customer with a crease about 20" long and probably 1/2' deep(no paint damage.Something had pushed the bedside in)on the bedside of their truck.Colors On Parade came by to fix it,which I thought was a joke,considering how bad the damage was.After a couple hours,they had completely worked the dent out,and you absolutely COULD NOT tell anything ever happened.Completely amazing.Highly recommended.
