What claybar did you use? You may need a more aggressive bar. Pic's of said "rust" spots?

....it really depends on the source. If they are the result of exposed metal from rock chips, you will need to clean/prep and paint those areas to prevent future problems. However, if they are the result of ferrous material embedded in the finish, there are decontamination products available that can address this more effectively than clay. The FK kit Jonny mentioned is one. There are also others like Valugard ABC, CarPro Iron-X, etc.

....again, it really depends on the source of the issue. Compound my help remove the rust blooms but if the cause is embedded ferrous contaminants, the problem will likely return. Even clay has it limitations in this respect. Decon products (like the ones mentioned) will help dissolve any corrosion and aid in the release of those metal particles from the paint. ....if your issue is rust as a result of chipping, the answer seems obvious.
