    X2... with as many chips as you have a pick would take WAY to long.

    Again.. Bump!

    Which attachment for the dremel will work good but not effect the surrounding paint?

    Yea, the above will work. But for the rusted ones try a sharp pointed pocket knife and dig as much rust as you can out of the chip. If there is rust left in the hole use OSPHO or Naval Jelly. Apply it in the hole with a tiny artists paint brush to apply into the hole not getting the brush wet enough to run onto the paint. Let it set per the instructions and touch up with paint.

    I have dug the rust out of pin hole size places with an xacto knife. But your chips sound bigger and deeper and you may not be able to dig all the rust out. .
    So use the OSPHO or Naval Jelly to treat the rust. Be careful with the OSPHO it is an acid and will not be good for the paint but it kills rust good.

    Awsome! yeah the 2 that are rusted are pretty deep, and one has been there for quite awhile. So I know its ganna be a bitch to get the rust off. So Im thinking a dremel will work pretty good. But I will try the knife first. thanks!

    I got the rust out... I just used some light sand paper. And was careful not to damage the good paint. Got it touched up, but I still need to put aother couple coats on it.
    Thanks for the tips and help guys.. :)

    I've got exactly the same issue, two stone chips that started to rust immediately. Really small like an 1/8 of an inch in diameter. I was thinking of using a solvent on there to get the rust out like Hoppe's #9 or something, it gets rust off guns no problem. Then I can use some touch up paint on them. I'm a little worried about the solvent getting under the good paint though. At the dealership they told me to use a wire brush, but that would be impossible without marring the good paint.

    for smaller holes I think a dremel would workk better. mine was big enough to use a corner of sand paper.
