Rust touch up tricks?

Hey folks-

Well I'm trying to make the bird "sale-ready" and there are just a couple of little spots in the paint. Otherwise the paint on the car is really nice. Is there any way to knock out small patches of surface rust without making the spot look awful? I suppose anything looks better than rust, but does anybody have experience doing this sort of thing?

Yeah, post pics like Barry said.....but one thing to think about is, sometimes it's better to just leave it untouched. A lot of the time quick repiars look scarier during a sale then just leaving the problem plainly visible. Leaves less to the buyers imagination if you know what I mean.

at the very least I"ll probably put some rust converter on the spots. Digital camera is somewhat on the fritz, I'll try to get a few pix on here soon so you all can give me a professional opinion! My jeep and its shot front end is taking up virtually all my time right now... 65 miles a day commute with the bird and its 3.73's is not easy on gas, but its better than losing a ball joint on crappy michigan roads...
