Unfortunately stone chips are a common problem with civics due to the paint be so terrible, thin,soft. Did you use a sealant or wax after you polished because you will need to, then wax every 2 months or so but inbetween wax use a quick detail spray to top up the finish

Yes you'll need to get some protection on it mate, get yourself a nice wax and apply thinly then buff off.

Hi and welcome to Civinfo. Cost of resprays? you really need to do your homework here or you will geat a cheap job at a cheap price, when what you want if it exists is a good job at a low price.

Why not post some photos and I'm sure someone will advise.

Hi & welcome to the forum.

Respray costs vary dependant on who you go to. My advise would be to find someone who can recommend somewhere so that you only have to pay once (some places are cheap for a reason and you don't want to have to get it resprayed again).
