Chipped paint and rust on bonnet Sign In

Hi all

I'm new here. I drive a 2015 Hyundai i30. I noticed a chipped paint with signs of rusting on the bonnet as I was cleaning the car. I am wondering if you could let me know what is the best way to fix this problem? Thank you.

Just buy a little bottle of touch up with a built in brush and just dab it to cover the bare metal. It will still be visible but not as bad.

Fixing it right would require a bunch of sanding, priming and filling and the painting a large area. It could run in the hundreds so just touch it up and live with it for the time being.

Thanks for your quick reply.

If I use a touch up paint and paint it over, would this stop the existing rust from getting any worse?

Cheers.

It will definitely slow it down dramatically.
