Now go over it by hand with a brown 3M SCOTCH BRITE pad to get all the fine rust out. After that, wipe it down with lacquer thinner. Then get you some RUSTOLEUM PROFESSIONAL red oxide primer.

andrew, I really have to suggest the POR-15 for this. it actually seals the rust from the air. primer only works if:

A. you can really get all the rust (doubtful you will) and
B. you completely get rid of the leak.

POR-15 will let you put it over rust and keep it sealed if you can't 100% get rid of the leak. you don't need to do the the whole floor, but you need do the the foot wells in the back. a small can should be enough to do it.

from one anal person to another, you already have it apart. fix it once correctly and never worry about it again.

http://www.stoprust.net/POR-15-Rust-...uart-p-23.html

right there, $38 for a quart. I'd say that is a lot cheaper than a floor pan replacment down the line. should be enough to do the job.

I know a lot of guys who swear by POR-15. It might as well be godly

See, it really is good stuff . My dad was out applying some today on his "new' trailer he loves so much. It'* about as close to "impervious" as you can get.

POR-15 is AMAZING. I've seen guys who've used it on as much as possible doing a full frame off resto, and it basically allows metal to be good forever.

I should see if I could get some rubbar matting that I use for ponds for you to put in after you get that rust out.
