Paint help needed please!

Hey guys and gals, so a couple weeks ago I backed up into a rock and kind messed up my back end. You can read the whole story and check out the pics here http://www.clubfrontier.org/forums/f...mn-rock-85670/

Any way not real worried about the bumper I can piece that together over summer, what I am worried about is rust getting onto the body of my lovely truck. So instead of the bumper folding like it should have it just went straight into the corner of the bed. It took off a bit of paint and its winter here so rust is really likely right now and the salt I'm sure is not helping, been trying to wait as long as I can before I gotta wash her again, but I have no idea what do to with the paint for the time being, I hear Rustoleum would work?? Never used it before, anyone got any tips, I can go and try to take a few better pics of where the paint is peeling if needed just let me know.

You can buy a can of aerosol paint in your paint code from a local automotive paint dealer or online.

This ^^^

or a can of clear coat just to get it sealed up until you can spend some time doing it right. You can even spray the clear into a container and use a brush to dab it into the chipped paint areas.

OK I will try and find a paint shop nearby see what they got. The clear coat sounds best for now till it warms up here, does anyone by chance know where I could find my color code, would it be in my owners manual?

2010 Nissan Frontier Touch Up Paint Colors

I've bought touch up paint for multiple cars from this place and it works great. They also sell primer and clear coat as well.

Sorry, hear are the 05 colors:

What red is it? if its Red Brawn the code is A15 or if its Red Alert the code would be A20 to know for sure look in side the drivers door on the ID tag and it should say at the bottom under color should have a number matching one of those hope this helps.
