I mask the rust spots off and just paint the chipped ceramic areas and try to blend it in, it won't be perfect, but from a distance you can't tell. I don't know why, but it seems the Red ones get beat up more than any Black kettle I've had. The Reds shine up pretty good with fine steel wool and if you really want it to shine I buff them with Meguiars Sealer/Glaze.
Dupli-Color Engine Red is a pretty good match.
