My Ride: 98 Civic, 02 M3
I work at a body shop and most of the time touch up paint looks like doo doo. If it's only the hood and bumper that are all chipped get those 2 fully repainted. On my e46 m3 the fenders and the qtrs both have a million chips as well as the hood, I just painted the front bumper because the previous owner kept hitting parking blocks in the parking space. But for me I have a scratch on each door and acid from prev owner on 1 qtr. I am just going to repaint the whole car. If u just want to get rid of the rust color just put touch up paint over it until u have enough time/ money to repaint it. Painting just the hood will make the fenders look slot older. You can have the car detailed after it's painted but that new paint look won't last more than a couple months. My advice is just wait till u have enough money and repaint the whole car.
