headliner surface rust

I pulled down the headliner in my 64 Chevy(nasty Job) anyway the area above where the headliner was adhered doesn't have any major rust but it doesn't appear to have been galvanized. Now that the glue and all has been removed there is surface rust forming you can rub your hand over it and your hand comes down reddish. I want to put some sound deadening material down but what's my best plan of action? Can I wipe the area down with phosphoric acid type material? Then paint it? I don't want to make things worse. Thanks, Eric

I'm going to move your thread to Body-Exterior, I think you'll get better answers there.

I'm not a big fan of converters and miracle rust coatings but this is an ideal area for POR15. If there's suface rust the POR should stick really well and provide the protection you need and a good surface for sound deadening application.

I agree with Baddbob, get a paint brush and put on a coat of POR-15. Let it dry for a day, then you can glue to it.

I'm with Bob too. When I get a metal part that is rusty and I need to glue to it, I wire brush it and then spray on Extend by Loctite from an aerosol can. It gives me a decent surface that I can glue to. POR 15 would do the same thing.
