Or do I have to use a rust jelly/remover first? Let me know, as I am interested in buying some later on.
Your first Step in Rust prevention Wolud be to Hit it with a wire brush and Knock off any of the loose stuff.
Then You want to Clean the surface with MARINE CLEAN, MC- is a Industrial strength cleaner and degreaser mixed 1-1 with hot water the hotter the better. Give the Area to be painted a good bath then completely rinse the surface and let dry.
Then apply the METAL READY, MR is a Phosphoric Acid with Zinc in that etches the metal, opens the Pores if it has been blasted, and leaves a ZINC coating.
Then Apply two Coats of the POR-15 Rust Preventive paint And Topcoat if needed.
The POR-15 can be directly applied to The Rusty surface but Myself and others that have used the product will highly recommend you follow all these steps above to have the best results.
