My question is similar this question but my focus is a little different. I have a 1982 Porsche 911 that has collected quite a number of chips and scratches on the front, mostly from rocks bouncing off the road and onto the hood. Some of the chips are deep and have started to rust.
I am planning on doing a thorough job on it in a few months when it gets warmer, including all of the sanding, preparation, paint and clearcoat with a paint gun at that time. However, I'm thinking that maybe I should do something temporary just to halt the rust until I can take the time to do it right.
My question is: should I do a quick rattle-can job now just to halt the rust, or leave it alone until I can take the time to do it right?
I don't drive the car much these days, and it is always under a car cover but not in a garage. I should also mention that the car is in a humid subtropical climate so that's a factor that may be relevant here. Also about six months ago, I started to work on it, but only got as far doing a little light sanding and using naval jelly.
