D-rust it, Safest rust remover, Evapo rust.

I have read many of the debates on rust, I understand to do it correctly it must be removed and epoxy primed. I have delt with a car that was dipped several years ago and it seeped or weeped at the joints due to the inability to neutralize. I was wondering if any one has tried any of the brands listed in the title? I have researched these and found that they use Chelation method. As I understand, this works by surrounding the oxide ions and is not strong enough to effect the iron ions.... There are several users that are much smarter than me, that may understand chemestry or MSDS sheets. I am not looking for a "magic bullit" I know this is a lot of work. I also know that what they promise, they don't always deliver.

I am going to attempt to post a photo of the project I plan on using it on.

If this stuff works:
Will it need to be neutralized?

Will it cause hydrogen embritlement?

How would you prep bare metal prior to epoxy?

Would you treat the inside as well? If not what would you reccomend?

thanks for the help.
