I've used POR15& Rust-Magnet paints and thought they performed pretty well. They do say that it isn't supposed to be used as a top coat because of the UV affects, but it works great as a primer for a topcoat. I have also powdercoated as well. I would go with the powder coating for the best results and less effort on your part. To use any of the rust treatment type paints requires good prep as well as a lot of time to cover it well. Although the cost will be a little higher (remember that those rust treatment paints aren't cheap) the time saved can be used on lots of other areas.
