Hey there,

Best thing to do is only preventative measures. Otherwise, basically you have to grind off the rust, or sand it down, and paint over it. You can get the Rust Check stuff at Canadian Tire to spray on, and rust hates grease, so that's why it won't spread but only FOR sure thing is to sand it away or grind it away, and paint over.

And as for rust proofing... no such thing, only preventative.

and rock chips I believe I did have a tutorial... but you can find it on YouTube. Just touch up so it bubbles over, then sand, and polish, and it'll look like new! When your sanding make sure its 2000 grit. But that's the long story short.
