    I have a 2001 Tacoma and it has several small paint chips that have rusted. I mean they are about the size of a pencil eraser, but they have rusted. I thought about sanding them down and putting a little paint on them from the dealer. What are you owners doing there????? Rick

    If the chips are indented you may have to end up puting a very small amount of bondo into them then sanding it down just depends on how good you want it to look. But if they are still smooth with the body of your truck then i would say go ahead just be careful and take ur time!!
