Default Rust Dilemma

My cable hangars are welded to my steel frame on my Fuji Newest. The
one
near the seat tube (on the top tube) was rusted. I used my dremel to
remove
rust which was on the inside portion of the hangar, as well as at the
junction (weld) of the hangar/top tube. What is the best way to deal
with
minor repaint?

If there's not much to touch up, try nail polish, if you can find any
that matches the color reasonably well.

You can also get automotive touch-up paint in a semi-useful range of
colors at auto parts stores. There might be a shade that would be a
fair match for your frame.
