I just found this at Lowe's and wondered if it would be good enough to use on my floorpans. 3 of them have some surface rust that I will hit with a wire brush on my grinder. I need something to go over them afterwards to protect and prevent anymore rust and I don't have access to a compressor and air gun.

Don't know about that spray can primer but I have used (am using) the Bill Hirsch Miracle Paint and I am inpressed about how hard it is and how well it seems to stick.

Eastwoods, Corroless red primer would be better..
spray cans or brush on...good stuff for your application,
not cheap, i put it on my 50 f1 pickup frame abt 5 yrs ago, still holding up well...there are other brands also, color is similar to Fords original red primer , but they used laquer primer this is more of an enamel type primer for rust

Check out Zero Rust. That's what I used on my undercarriage.

I reduced it a little and put it on with a brush. Good stuff.

I can't imagine epoxy primer in a rattle can being any good. The reason the epoxy works so well is that it uses an activator to get the juices flowing. Know what I mean?

I found some stuff at Walmart.. rust converter, it conversts rust into primer. I used it to de rust the back of my rear bumper I recently replaced...after some wire brushing. I thenr primered and painted the back of the bumper. I let it sit outside exposed for a few days to test it and it seemed to not have any active rust on it after wards. but I didn't trust it to be the only primer I used.

Use Corroless from Eastwood or POR-15 for rust. I wouldn't trust anything else.

Yeah, I've used that stuff too, just in case there was anything I couldn't see. Like you, I used other primer over it though, as it isn't very durable, and gets scratched easily.
