When I've worked on cars here in the 'Rust Belt'- we have average humidity of 65-95 per cent- I have a problem with rusting work- the stuff willys36 spoke of is great, but if you do any fill you shouldn't use it- I just rattle can some flat black enamel on areas I have worked with welding and fill/putty and they can be easily knocked down later when you're ready for final fill, primer, etc. Remember primer is not 'water proof' unless you use catylized stuff- and not cheap to just sand off again!! The cheap paint will seal it well but can be easily quick sanded with fine grit before your final finish work- hope it helps.
