How to treat light body rust prior to epoxy
This past winter I DA'd the body panels on my Bird down to bare metal using 80-grit disks. Not knowing any better at the time, I then coated all the exposed metal with a product called "Right Stuff", a phosphoric-based rust converter/inhibitor available at the local Advanced Auto store. While it has done very well at preventing any visible recurrence of rust-back on the majority of the body panels, there are areas that have begun to show signs of rust-back lately.
Now that warm weather is here I plan to get all the panels cleaned up and ready for a couple of coats of epoxy primer so it will all be sealed tight until I can proceed further. The question is: what would you guys suggest I treat the bare metal with prior to the epoxy? Would using something along the lines of Pickle-X or Prep-Step be best approach?
