Repairing Paint Chips

Hi all,

I have a few chips that need to be addressed. Would you guys suggest going to the dealer to get the Toyota official paint pen, going to a site like paintscratch.com, or going to some other place?

I was thinking maybe going to a paint shop and seeing what they had to offer.

What is the proper way to fix small scratches? One spot I see has a bit of rust, so I know that needs to be cleaned carefully.

Thanks all.

I tried the langka kit with a paint pen from the dealer. It worked ok, but I still know the chips are there.
I feel it's mostly to stop the rust.

good luck
