    Hi Guys,

    Got a few questions around rust and paintwork on my Accord. I was looking to take the car to a paint shop to see if they can work out some scratches in the paint.
    When I've been checking the paint I noticed the following...

    1. Two patches of rust on the drivers side door, around the bottom & side edges. Both patches are about 5cm in length and 1cm wide. It looks like the door has probably been banged against a wall and chipped the paint off.

    2. A few rust spots at the front of the bonnet, mostly at the front edge. Spots are less than 1cm length & width and think they may have been caused by the salty winter.

    Is there anything I can do to prevent the rust from spreading, cover up or repair if possible. If I can get the patches covered then can leave to the shop to treat and touch up etc.

    Any advice / tips would be much appreciated.

    cheers
    Gareth
