To fill the dips in the chip I think you'll have to fill them with Dr Colorchip, then wet sand back and machine polish...

It looks like you need to build your layers up more, do you find you are pulling the paint up from the chip when you remove it?
They are very deep

Yep, I think you need to fill the chip in by doing layers, and wait a bit longer (say 3hrs?) before using the solution on it.

Once you have applied it once and got an improvement.

Can you commence a second session to cover any that are still slightly visible?
