I have several small rust spots that are mostly on surface - not deep holes.  A body shop has quoted me $200 to buff and repaint them.  I don't want to dump a bunch of $ into it if I can do it myself. 

I have no experience with touch-up painting, but willing to do it myself if there's a way.  It doesn't have to be perfect -- a fairly old car.  I already have paint from another touch-up done 2 years ago.  Another post mentioned to start with a 'rust converter'.  Not sure what the steps are in this.  Please respond if you can help me out.

See http://www.paintscratch.com/cgi-bin/show_products.cgi?ShowItem=39 and this will tell you about the rust converter. Sounds like you will need primer, paint and clearcoat also.
