If you're talking about that red lacquer glaze in a tube, I agree; it's worthless.

However, in the Land of Rust, pinholes are a real red flag, oh Honorable Moderator, and if you do fill them, typical polyester fillers won't work. The rust will come back, and it will come back fast. Poly fillers absorb water, swell, and promote rust. Whatever you use better be impervious to water and swelling. I've done a few rustorations, and the epoxy filler is your friend.
