Horse trailers, The urine, and manure impregnate the metal in all the blind spots and inside the tubes Ive painted many! I haven't found much that will stop it! The good products have been changed (E.P.A.) A good acid wash and triple rinse Etching primer on all bear metal, seal with a top line epoxy and shoot with a good industrial machine enamel ( colors are limited) That will take abuse and stand up against the animal excrement! They don't piss on everything but in the heat it evaporates and condensates and impregnates cracks and crevices even over head! The Bison trailers are the worst to rust in my opinion!
