The rust has to be removed, keeping the area as small as possible......then a touch of primer and touch up paint. Won't look the best but it will be covered and sealed to prevent spreading.

Would applying a rust converter be acceptable before doing the touch up?

Probably would be fine. Just so it is not to thick. You still need to expose any rusty surfaces that may extend under the edge of the paint chip.

Just wondering....if you bought it from a dealer, would they help you out any?

Clay bar only does fine surface imperfections, not like you have.

Have you asked a body shop?

Some have done a plasti-coat on body parts.....maybe a black roof would work. Search the forums for info on that.

There are several products that will do that. The issue I would be afraid of is it needs to get under the edges of the paint as there may be some rust there.

I would look into using small dremel pointed wheel to clean the rust....carefully......then treat with the rust protection and paint.

Those are just "rock" chips that started to rust... On other cars, I've just used the touch up paint you can score at any part store on some almost that bad and it was fine...
