patching chipped paint to prevent rust


I have an older bianchi that now has chipped paint in a few places and a few rust spots as well. I want to touch up the paint to protect the frame ... any advice?

I'm assuming that manually touching up the paint is the best option, but if you have other suggestions let me know. Thanks ~

nail polish I have heard works. I have a older Nishiki that the original owner used some type of touch up paint on it. That did not work, it rusted arround the edges. I would suggest sanding the nick area then getting some rustoleom in the desired color then apply. Also remember Aluminium (sp?) carbon (duh), an TI doesn't rust
