Anyone recommend a good paint touch up kit? I seen a few people recommend Dr Colorchip but I PaintScratch looks pretty promising. Anyone have experience with these? Just a few small small spots I need to patch before they rust.

Either will work. If it is something you care greatly about, best to go to someone skilled at doing that kind of work - in my experience skill way outstrips product selection when it comes to final result on this kind of thing.

No need for kits of anything. Just go to an auto paint supplier and have them make you the smallest container of paint they can.

Then remove rust and wax and fill in the spot over and over until the chip is over filled with a paint pimple. Then wet sand and polish.

On my 535 I worked on the hood chip after
chip. The more I fixed the more I saw. I ended up "painting" it with my finger! Some wet sanding and polish later and it looked perfect.
