Battery Tray Removal

Removed my battery tray due to rust. I was wondering if there is a special type of paint that I should use rather than a normal rattle can? Let me know if there is a specific type of paint to use.

If you want to keep it from rusting again due to battery acid then you can use this after you clean and prep it:

Otherwise use POR15 or just clean/primer/paint it with a rattle can.

battery tray

My battery tray was all rusted, so I had it sand blasted and galvanized. Now no more rust.

Take care,

I ended up prepping it down and using a can of black rustoleum. It looks good and has held up thus far. Probably going to use the expensive POR-15 on the tub when its time to refinish.

dipped mine in vinegar for a few days. got most of the rust off. used wire brush on a drill for the chunky rust. primed and rattle can after.
