Cracked Paint

Inevitably I have managed to catch my car on the fat *** of my other car when pulling out of my parking space at home.

Caught the rear arch enough for it to flex and crack the paint vertically along the arch is there something I can use to seal it against rust until I can get the cash together to have a respray done?

Not a happy bunny as fixing small area's on this type of paint just doesn't happen, probably end up painting half the car

If it's going to need paint anyway I'd be inclined to paint any bare metal with a touch-up stick and leave it at that.

Bilt Hamber Autobalm is the only LSP that claims to prevent rust from forming. I have never had the chance to test this claim but I can tell you that it is a very good LSP.
