Are we talking paint chips or scuffs on the paint? If theyre just scuffs you may want to try a good claybar. Or a meguiars step one paint cleaner. HTH.

Claybar and if that doesnt work you can try some scratch remover with an orange pad and porter cable to buff them out. If you want to go real aggressive on your paint you can try the scratch remover with a yellow foam pad and the porter cable.
