The better they are sealed the longer the rust will stay away. Proper preperation, a coat of epoxy primer and next a quality top coat.
Shoot us a pic of what you are changing/wanting to paint.

I like using the Eastwood Rust encapsulator on the bottom side - here is a video describing the rusting -

Again a high quality epoxy as a base with a top coat for protection. The problem is that salt water gets behind the panels to cause rust. This is what ive found to be as close to a factory finish for rust prevention.
