Default Little Rust

Hey everyone I have a little rust spot I notice near the bottom of my car by the back driver side door. Should I go to Autozone or w.e car store and buy there spray paint to paint it over or from that highly recommend spray paint vendor (http://www.automotivetouchup.com/)

Aside from the giant patch on the rear quarter panel on my 94, I've done nicely patching up stuff with spray paint from Auto Zone. However, their paint matches my car'* color extremely well. I found the paint code by way of BC, by the way.

I didn't even sand my plastic door cladding to fix paint chips. The rust, though, you should sand. Once you're done with the rust spot, you can easily fix paint chips in not-often-seen areas, like rocker panels. Good luck, and have fun!

Silver should be a pretty easy match. Head over to an auto store and check out their book and the color will be close but prolly not exact.
