    Rust chip

    Just had car cleaned and noticed a paint chip that has gone rusty, it's roughly the size of a 5 pence piece. Should I be concerned about this? Will it spread? Just been to 'Halfrauds' for a touch up pen but they don't have a lava grey, any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    Here is the culprit...

    Pass, looks like the rear quarter panel, so if they do below the trim line only with a good colour match, then shouldn't be too bad, may require that panel, hard to tell without rubbing back, but it has some other chips above it anyway, just find a few paint shops fella.

    Firstly, needs rust neutralised before painting.
    My car had a deep chip on the bonnet. Place bought car from had it repaired to an invisible finish.
