Painting door jambs on 35

Got car block sanded finally (I hope) and plan to cover everything with epoxy primer next week. I want to do door jambs the same time. Rest of car I stripped to bare metal but I plan on painting over original paint on jambs. I have gone over them with a wire brush on a drill and scuffed best I can with 80 grit. I plan to go over them with a scrub brush and grease and wax remover and then coat with Bulldog before priming. My question is : there is some surface rust in spots on the jambs - some I cant get to very good. Should I try to get navel jelly on it (even if I may not be able to rinse well) or will the epoxy primer seal it good enough. Please let me know if you see any other flaws in my "plan". Thank you

put some rust converter on it for sure , spray can at lowe's .
that 80 grip going to make it look like you brushed painted it .
go to some 320 at some point and primer and hit again with the 320 and a scrub pad ,fine type .
