Odd paint chips and rust

Has anyone else ever had this problem in such a weird spot? If so what did you do to remedy the situation?

I didn't see oversized tires listed in your sig but I was going to ask if it could be from some rock chips...still could be other people's vehicles throwing up stuff that caused a chip which led to what you see now.

I have stock tires but the dumba$$ that owned it before me never put mud flaps on it so you can imagine what the fenders are like on that michigan truck. I just find that such an odd place and the passenger side is having the same problem. Whats the best way to remedy the situation do yah think?

You can put a bandaid on it for now but since the metal is rusting already, it's only going to get worse...unless you don't care about what it looks like.

If you don't care about cosmetics, you could sand the rust and treat it with a rust inhibitor, put in some body filler and then cover that with some white paint. If it goes untreated, the rust is going to cause more paint to come off from the inside out. You could try taking it to a body shop and have them fix it up...they can blend it and, since your paint is white, they may be able to do a good enough job that you really don't notice it.
