So Honda has approved a blend of the driver side fender and a paint blend of the hood in the affected area... one of the main reasons why I wanted to have this fixed was because I thought they would paint the hood and thus I would have my 5-6 paint chips fixed....

I'm told Honda won't cover that so out of my pocket it will cost an additional $244 to fix the chips and blend the passenger side fender... do you think something like this will get much worse... should I bother fixing this at the cost of painting my hood?

anyone have any input?

If you see rust you should get it fixed. The rust will get worse. If it was just a clear drip it would not get worse because the coatings would still be completely covering the metal and shielding it from the elements. If there is rust that would infer that the E-Coat surface has been breeched and moisture and oxygen have gotten to the substrate. Rust is less dense than steel and will gain volume when it forms. This will cause it to expand some and open more room for more water and air to enter and create more rust.

Summary rust N/G get it fixed. Clear drip cosmetic only... OK if it's ok with you to look at it.
