Question about Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
Paint loss due to chipping when the area in question is down to bare metal requires a bit of paint maintenance. This can be accomplished by lightly sanding the small areas with 1500 grit wet style sand paper, then this area(s) will need to be cleaned off with a soft cotton rag. Once this is done, apply a spot primer to the area and let it dry.The best way is to spray the primer into a small container, then use a small diameter brush, and dip it into the primer that you have recently sprayed into the container and apply the primer to the defective area.
Do the same with a color matched paint after the primer has dried.
You can also apply a Carnuba wax to the area after sanding the rust out area,but this will not be a satisfactory result.
The best scenario would be to sand and blend the painted area to match.

Before you can prevent iron from rusting, you have to make sure that there isn’t already some rust on it.
Rust forms because iron reacts with oxygen. The air is full of it. So whenever some iron is left unattended it forms "rust", which is chemically known as iron oxide. Iron reacts so rapidly with oxygen, that there is hardly any "pure" iron available in nature. When iron rusts, it loses both its strenght and its look. Iron that does not rust--which we call "stainless steel"--is iron that has been removed of the impurities that react with oxygen to form rust.
To remove rust you've got to treat the object with a rust removing agent. Oxalic acid is one such agent. However, before you treat the object with oxalic acid, gently scrub the area where the rust has formed to separate the lose fragments. Oxalic acid should work well in removing the rust.
By doing a few simple things you can actually prevent iron from getting rust. For indoor items, see to it that the items are cleaned regularly. Care should be taken to see that the surface of the item is kept dry. You can occasionally wipe the item with a damp cloth, but the surface should be immediately wiped dry so that no moisture adheres to the metal (water is one part oxygen).
To protect outdoor items made from iron, especially wrought iron items free from rust, you need to apply rust resistant metal paint to the objects. If rust has already settled in, then you need to follow a much longer procedure. Don’t just apply the paint straightaway. First scrub the areas where rust has formed--using either a sandblaster or sandpaper. Once the area is cleaned you will have to apply some rust resistant primer on the surface. This primer will not only protect the iron from rusting again but will also hold the paint better when it is applied over the primer.
The main thing is not to neglect your iron items or they will get rusty, and--if they do get rusty--you have to act fast. Rust can spread pretty quickly and ruin the strength of iron.

Our firm licensed the patented technology that Ford used for their paint durability analysis of the Ford Excursion. The issue with most Excursions is paint applied below Ford's minimum paint thickness specifications that should not have been released to the market. Conusmers have been active and in 10 states have taken action in Small Claims Court or outside of it and the results have been that Ford has compensated the owners. We have published Ford's lack of compliance about later years Excursion on page 118 in our research publication:
