Fixing chips and scratches

I have a silver gts as you can see... it has a lot of scratches...
How would start? I got the touch up paint and I can't decide on what kind of sand paper i should get.

Should I sand paper the areas first then apply the touch up paint? If so what kind of sand paper?

Or use the touch up paint first then sand paper it with a fine grain sand paper like #1500.

Thanks in advance!

Well... we were leasing the car and I just love the car so much that I decided to buy it. for 3 years I didn't really take care of the car and never redlined either. I've decided to take better care of MY car now... grin

Get a quote at a GOOD body shop. It's never going to look right when you fix it yourself.

OR

Come park in my lot and wait for a semi to hit your car... free paint. rofl

I got one more problem,all over my car(silver paint)there are tiny dots of rust,I do not know whether it's too unusual,but I do not think it should be like that.The GT is 2001.Is it possible to do something about that?Like wax or something? thanks
