Paint chips

I have a few small chips that came out of my paint and they are turning brown and rusting out. IS they any way I can fill in the holes? I can pick up some touch up paint I know but I don't like seeing a knick here and there. I swear I should just move south so I don't have to put up with salt trucks...

Any help?

There really isn't much you can do short of repainting sections of the truck and then blending the paint. That's a lot of work for paint chips.

If you want to prevent chips, you can get clear protective plastic that is for that purpose. I think Summit Racing carries it. If they don't, any place that sells automotive paint should.

I gave up on fixing most chips a long time ago...I get them on the rockers a lot, so I just clean them real well and spray some clear on there to keep rust away.

I had this 3M Paint Protection installed. This stuff is sweet and guarenteed.

I also have several of these rust specs on my truck from rock dings I guess. Wish I could do something to take them out, any ideas would be awesome.
