Stone chip repair

Hi guys, I have some stone chips that need repairing, one really bad one on the right hand side on the tank and a few minor ones on the rear on the left hand side. Before I try anything and make a complete hash of it, I thought I'd ask if anyone has any pointers on performing paint repairs for me?

Yes....take it to a professional. Preferably one who does paint on high end cars.

I cant seem to find any protectors for the leading part of the tank to prevent this. ANyone know of any products?

Could I use clear car vinyl, cut to shape and heat to shrink around the shape of the tank area in question?

In a word, YES. Helicopter tape from 3M works well. Designed to protect the leading edge of helicopter rotor blades. That's where the car stuff originated from.
