Default Paint chips

first time i took my cap off since i bought the truck last year and i found 3 paint chips along the top sides of the bed....whats the best way to cover this up so they dont rust out in the salty air at the beach?

Nevermind I thought this thread was about whether or not anyone else found them crunchy and delicious as a child. I'll move on good luck with your post.

it did. so I had to put a good thick coat on then put my topper back on. the seal on the back window rubbed the tailgate down to bare sheet metal. I got rear ended so they had to replace the tailgate for me I forgot it did that so when I put it back on it rubbed the paint off AGAIN so I got weatherstripping for the seal

probably. mine didn't match worth a darn. I used to have a Saturn and it didn't match on there either. someone told me that if you buff it good and get wax on top the duplicolor that it will blend better
