Default Hood chips

Ive got a few little chips on my hood near the edge, they are looking rusty. Whats the best way to stop corrosion? Just paint pen over it?

Touch up for sure..

I just bought Dr. Color Chip after reading many positive reviews on NASIOC. I'll let you know how it works out.

Check out my "chip"

Touch up paint can do pretty good if you apply it in several light layers. Try and get rid of the rust first before painting it if you can. I used a small hand buffing foam pad thing to smooth it after. I had several 1/8" x 1/8" chips in my hood and door and you can barely see them now. Also gave it a good waxing after which helped shine up the paint.
