Rust, jack points on my 1984 SL

I found a good size chunk of rust near one of the jack points on my 84 SL. I plan on sanding it out. Is there a product I can apply that will prevent or slow down any future rust? The car has a very nice paint job on it now so a total re-paint is not necessary. I would like to touch it up but don't know if Lapis Blue is still offered in a touch up kit or not. Any thoughts?

Lapis blue paint

You can get the paint mixed for you at any decent auto paint store --the ones that supply the body shops. It will cost about $20 for 1 qt. (minimum charge)

Thanks guys. Looks like Por 15 followed with Paintscratch. I see that Paintscratch has the Lapis Blue in a spray can. Cool! Perfect for a small job like this.
