Joe,
I have used Naval Gel with good results. Just follow the instructions on the container. After rinsing and letting dry I give it a good coat of Rustoleum paint.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Depending on where your rust is and the extent, you can use a rust converter, like Rust Reformer. I had to treat a large rusty area under my motorhome. I had to scrape off undercoating that was failing and then used a product called Chassis Saver. It goes on like paint but I had to completely protect myself from the product and fumes.

I have used Ospho with good results. Follow the directions and you'll have good results.

Just remember, if you use a rust reformer type of product(phosphoric acid) you will also need to paint the surface with a good enamel like Rustoleum.

If you are still in the market for a good product to convert rust, try Por 15 POR15, Inc. - Stop Rust Permanently - Repair Gas & Fuel Tanks I use this in car restorations & is considered the best product for the job by many professional auto restorers. It is pricey, but it does the job & lasts. If you are interested be sure to read the directions & Q&A on this website. It also must be painted if exposed to UV light or it will fade, it will not effect its performance though if not painted.

That is the stuff for sure. I used a lot of that on the camaro, some as much as 10 years ago. The stuff won't come off, and the rust won't come back.

Knock off the loose rust with a wire cup in a die grinder, or a 3m stripping wheel. Paint the por15 on with a disposable foam brush. If you are going to top coat it, dust it with some spray can primer when it is still tacky. If it dries to a gloss, no paint will ever stick to it. Uot of the sun, the hard gloss black finish will last forever.

Work outside, lots of ventilation.Don't even think about spraying it unless you have a fresh air respirator, this stuff has a ton of isocyanate in it. Buy the 6 packs of tiny cans. Once opened, the stuff will harden in the can, it won't last long, and a little goes a long way.

Another vote for POR-15.... I did the whole frame underneath of a 94 Jeep I had. That stuff is GREAT. It dries jet balck with a coating that does not chip, crack, break or rust.

You can order on line, but be carefull, it does not like to come off your hands or hair... LOL Ask me how I know.

Regards... Jim P.
