spc78 I used Eastwood's Rust Encapsulator, then seam sealed, then coated it all with Eastwood's Chassis Black. Looks very crisp and clean.

JohnnyK81 Any paint is brushable.. It just might not look as good. Which is moot here.

Definitely paint before seam sealing.

And I'd use some sort of epoxy on the floors since it's new clean metal.

Why don't you want to use POR 15?

Anyone have any suggestions on what paint and what seam sealer would work best.And should I seam seal before or after painting
If you clean the metal and prep the surface properly POR 15 goes on smooth as glass even with a brush. Just scuff the surface and paint with your choice of interior color.
I am using window flashing (the kind you can get at Lowes/ home depot) it's an 1/8th inch thick and has a metal backing. It's much cheaper and goes on great. If you put the coatings on it doesn't matter what color the paint is and your using on the floor only anyway. (Inside)
If you want to go on the outside I would still use POR 15 or you could use Master's Series.
If you don't want to use something so expensive then use Farm Implement paint at any paint store it's bullet proof.

Old Fool SPI epoxy is brushable, rollable, sprayable.

poncho62 Not sure about the sealer, but I would use an epoxy primer first before any paint.
