    the tractor collector community swears by that class of stuff and it works..
    hope this helps

    So a self etching primer?

    Now I can't decide what to do...lol

    This thing doesn't need to be perfect. Etching primer sounds a bit more simple with less room for error than phosphoric acid/primer process. I suppose it might depend on how much rust I'm able to physically remove before hand.

    these conversion coatings are a one step deal converter/primer... one of the easiest to get is Rust-Oleum Rust Reformer.... most hardware stores carry it...

    you may find this a painless solution

    Making progress. Still a lot of work to do with a wire wheel.

    Good ol' Rust-Oleum...lol Reminds me of something I'd pickup at wally world when I was 12.

    Seriously, is it worth using or am I going to be redoing it in a few years, even with a good solid topcoat?

    Thanks again Heiti

    if you live in winter/salt country you will redo it every few years regardless.. You have gotten it very clean... in your situation I would go with the rust reformer.. give it 24hours in a warm dry place to set and dry then brush 2 good coats of rustoleum black on it.. (or purple or red or... your decision)
    then you are good to go...
    thanks

    Got it done. The wire wheel did OK but I ended up using a flap disk on the heavy rust spots.

    One coat of the Rust Reformer. Just a light coat of sandable primer (I like to do a light sanding before paint) and 3 coats of paint.
