    Touch-up paint pen or brush bottle. It will be invisible at three feet (unless you're really bad with a touch up brush).

    Touch up paint. I have one that come with separate paint and clear. Touch it up, then buff it smooth, white is the most forgiving color.

    Build the chip up a little at a time then get some very fine sandpaper to level it out. I use a little masking tape on all 4 sides of the chip, apply the touch up paint, scrape off any excess paint with the straight edge of a playing card (while keeping the edge of the card on the tape). You will end up with a raised & painted area where the chip was. Then apply some polish to bring the gloss back out.

    I've got a similar rock chip on mine, but it's on the drivers side. Drives me nuts as well. Not sure I can use touchup pain as mine is also gouged a bit.

    I hate gravel trucks with a fucking passion because of this. I'm anal about my truck, but if a random rock pops up on my truck then it is what it is. If a gravel truck spits rocks, then fuck that truck and fuck that company! You cant just let it fly out of the back of your gravel trailer.

    I've got a total of 7 chips in my windshield right now due to construction on the freeway. I have to pass this area twice a day and it sucks. I'm holding out until the construction is done before getting a replacement.
