Chips in paint, proper way to fix

Hey guys, I have an 06 f250 6.0 with 340,000km on it so understandably it needs some attention to the paint(country driving). I have various paint chips on the hood, fenders and around some of the window. The latest being the size of a 25cent quarter or so. Most of them are just showing the grey primer, some
Of the chips have a rusty color to them, but not rot.

My question is what is the best way to fix these by my self properly? I just don't want to have rust start bubbling through in the future.

The right way to fix it is to sand and feather edge every chip then prime paint and clear coat it. The cheap easy way to fix it is to go get an arosol can with color matched paint and paint over them.

what makes painting so expensive, like im sure i could sand and prep door no problem, how much should a shop be charging for a door that only needs spraying with all panels and glass removed?

Paint for you to buy isnt that expensive. When you go to a shop they are charging you 45 dollar a hour labor, plus materials. To paint just a door you also have to blend into the fender and rear door or bedside (whichever cab configuration you have) You dont have to remove the door glass just take the belt line molding and window rubber out. To make life easier you should take your handles out though

Just for a price idea I can paint my truck (CCSB) for between 700-1200$ a shop will charge 5000-7000$

You have to sand the clearcoat with a DA(dual action) sander with 400 grit sandpaper. Then clean with a degreaser then use a tack cloth(wear rubber gloves). As for chips you need to feather edge them. which is removing some paint from each layer so it looks like a small bullseye. Any bare metal showing you should use a self etching primer or a direct to metal primer. wet sand the primer so its smooth. 2-3 coats of base then a minimium of 3 coats of clear(southern states i advise 4 or 5).

man it sounds pretty simple, just very timely.
so the more coats of clear coat the better? i live in northen alberta, lots of rocks fly all year round, now how does the quality of paint make a difference here?
and is spraying nice even paint all in the quality of the sprayer and equiptment?

its extremely timely a complete paint job on a CCSB you can expect 30 to 40 hours to do a complete paint job. The more coats of clear is better to a point. After about 5 coats you should color sand to keep the clear from getting hazy. 5 coats of clear is alot though.
Quality of paint has more to do with the pigments in the base coat and UV protection in the clear then its durambility to rock chips.
The spraying of nice even paint has more to do with the person spraying then the equipment. A novice painter usually on gets a ok/good paint job with any spray gun. Great paint+cheap gun= good paint job. Great painter+best gun=perfect paint job.
If you plan on painting yourself make sure you have an aircompressor the can produce a minimum of 19 CFM

yah im thinking of tearing the whole truck apart every nuts and bolt and spraying everything black and keeping KR interior, do the frame blue, and then put it back together and build it the way ford should have. what kind of paint is used to cover the frame (last 50 years never chip or anything) and what kind for the body for the best shine in gunmetal grey or black??
