Rock Chips

I've got a fair amount of rock chips in the hood of my tb. After a compound and polish it looks good except for the deeper scratches and chips of missing / diminished paint. Do I just apply touch up paint, wetsand it even with the rest and compound and polish? Does gm use a 2 stage or 1 stage paint on solid black vehicles? Do I need to clear over the touch ups?

what about making a sanding pencil and getting it in there? My biggest question is of the clear coat; if I touch up the areas do I need to re-clear over it? I have access to a thickness gauge so going through the paint is not a big concern to me, just the issue of going through the clear.
Oh that was more vague than I intended. I'm talking about the area surrounding the chips.
is there 2 stage paint on my vehicle from the factory?
would I be better off using their products as opposed to oem?
oh nice. I might just pick that up then.
