      Got home, pulled up the carpet and got out the wire brush on my drill. I'm happy to report it all seems to be surface rust and the floor boards are solid.
      That's good news. I still recommend the phosphoric acid solution, it'll kill the rust for good and promote adhesion with the paint. You can get it from Home Depot as Kleen Strip concrete etcher.


      You can also buy Rust Bullet's Metal Blast, or Ospho or Picklex.

      I would pull the carpet completely out and pop the drains in the back. Apply the acid, let it do it's thing and then rinse with water and air blow dry. Apply your paint over the top as needed and re-install the plugs and interior.

      There's plugs in the back lol? I didn't get to the rear floor boards yet.

      I used Klean-strip a few hours ago and saw some pretty quick results. How long do you think I should let it sit before cleaning it off? Just wipe it up with water after?

      I have some Mastercoat permanent rust sealer that will arrive in a day or two. Is that stuff thick enough to fill some small gaps and seams that weren't sealed correctly when the pans were replaced?

      @rtate I use this from Home Depot to Parkerize parts.
      I heat it in a old crockpot 20 minutes or so. Rinse and oil. Only the bolts have oil. Nothing was on the shock plates.
