Default Anyone have some tips for a rusted rock chip?

Have 3 little tiny rock chips on the front of my prelude that have rusted. Anyone have some tips for dealing with it? Rust converter pen? Light wet sanding? Just touch up paint em? I wish I had tackled it earlier, but the longer I leave this I imagine the worse it will get.

Por-15 is the best product I've used to stop rust. Even if you don't use the paint itself before your top coat, the cleaner and prep are awesome. Beware though, if you use the paint (3rd step) when it dries it is hard a rock and nearly impossible to remove, so if you put too much it's work to sand it down.

But the basic step is to remove as much rust as possible, either by sanding or some other friction method, use a rust killing product, rust inhibiting primer, then your touch up paint.

i think i remember reading somewhere that you should cover the surrounding area with painters tape and then wet sand with 2000 grit sandpaper to remove the rust.

Have you ever tried 2000 grit sandpaper on rust?

Are you trying to polish the rust with that 2000 grit?

The easiest way to take the rust off is a prep disc, you can get them pretty small about 1" in diameter. But if you do that, then you will have to carefully feather the paint around the area by wet sanding. It all depends on how far you want to go with the repair, the proper way is to go to bare metal, feather sand, use the etching compound/rust killer, fill in with body filler or glaze if needed, prime, then paint.

The cheap and dirty way is to use the rust killer, then hit it with touch up paint. It will slow down the rust but it will come back eventually.

Sand to remove loose crap then use rust converter on it (I use the Rust-Oleum stuff). You also won't have to repaint right away as it seals and primes the surface.
