I have a few very small rust spots on my fender- the biggest being about a half inch long. Does anyone have any advice for getting rid of them?

do you need a non envasive not doing a respray approach?
Or I'm stripping this bitch and what the best way to deal with the rust approach?

Right on the first count. I don't plan on respraying. I just don't want it to get any worse. It's so small, I'm wondering if I can't just sand it off.

Depends on what degree of finishing
You want to achive.

The best approach is to strip, sand, repaint.

The other way to approach it is to use
A wire brush to remove some rust. Apply
An anti-rust catalyst (I use rust n-m-e)
or naval jelly am then use touch up paint.
