A good rust inhibiting paint easy to source locally?

Sup' guys

Can anyone a recommend a durable rust inhibiting paint that's easily found in a local auto parts store, Hester Zipper, Wal-Mart, etc...

I'm going to strip my undercarriage while swapping in a new driveshaft, and want to remove all rust, inhibit it and then coat it with Herculiner. I would order Rust Bullet but I'm pressed for time.

Awesome. Zero Rust seems to be the most commonly available on the retail level.

Zero Rust wasn't on my radar but after some googleling, I'll see if our oReilly's has some.

The only truely "rust inhibiting paint" is used by preparing the surface and applying epoxy primer. Anything else will be a temporary cover up that will rust again later.

There are a bazillion threads on here concerning rust inhibitors. Reading of what has already been posted on the subject will give you quite an education on the matter.
