    My car has a few stone chips but they seem to be quite deep. upon close inspection you can actually see metal.

    Any ideas on filling this?

    You can build up layers of paint, laquer it, and then machine polish...done it myself, and it worked well for me. Otherwise get a specialist paint correct firm to do it for you.
