Time to kill some rust...

Ok guys, I just wanted to run this by you and see what everyone had to say. My plans for this weekend are as follows:

1) Pull out the interior of the CJ

2) Wire brush/Sand every bit of rust out of my floor boards etc down to bear metal again.

3) Use Permatex Rust Treatment on the floor pans etc and let it set up.

4) Come in and repaint the tub with the hope that rust will not come back, at least not in the next 8-10 yeats

Now I was just curious on your opinions of how this might work out for me. There is some moderate rust in the tub, but nothing serious as of right now. I just want to take care of it before replacement is my only option. How well does the permatex rust sealer work. I have heard some great things about it if you sand down to bear metal etc... Any thought on this would be most appreciated

Oh and one more thing, What type of paint should I use to repaint my floorboards? Just curious what most ppl use here. Thanks.

Jason

I used por-15 but still in my opinion the only way it won't come back in 10 years is if you cut it out now. As for the floor of the tub I used U-pol raptor.

Try and get all the rust. I used Eastwoods rust encapsulater paint and and happy with the results 3 years later. I applied two coats with days of drying time in the summer sun.

Zero Rust is pretty much the same and it comes in spray cans and is a bit easier to work with than POR. A rust converter such as Permatex may react with some top coats. I would wire brush and then spray Zero Rust then top coat with some thing durable.
