Default Oxidized Paint...and *NEW* RUST HOLE!!!

Ok, well my cars paint is not the best...in fact it really is nothing to look at...what is a cheap and easy fix to fix the appearance of the burnt paint i have in various locations...HEELLLPP!!

ALSO, what can i do for all the swirls...tons of em...looks like someone took a brillo pad to the paint...probably fro back when they used to use brushes and swabby things to wash cars in auto carwashes or something...but they are really UGLAY!!

oh yeah and pics...

A car cover would be my only low cost, non painting it over suggestion.

you can try different polishes and compunds on it, but it looks like the clear coat is missing. Too keep it from spreading I would suggest keeping a good coat of wax on it at all times.
