Just above the Vauxhall Badge on the front of my corsa the paint has started to peel away, and rust is forming. Also at some other points on the car the paint is starting to peel off with rust underneath it.

Just wondered how i can stop this before it takes over the whole car. I thought about just getting some touch up paint, but this won't stop the rust that is already there will it?

well u can but hammerites KURUST that stops round then touch it up with touch up pen... as for the ones where rust in underneath the paint think the paint needs takin away first.

yeah you'd need to get rid of the peeling paint before using hammerite
