deadbodyman It certainly looks clean and rust free but the pits are too deep. you should probably replace that section, it wont last very long. Good job cleaning up the rust.
Make it yourself and have some fun.

In that case, go ahead and scrubb it with the Ospho but be absolutely sure you rinse every bit off. Epoxy will not stick to acid residue. I try not to use acid but, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

One of the guys on here suggested making a slurry out of sand blast media and Osho which he could use to scrub into the bottom of the pits. It sounded like an interesting idea to me.....again wash it all off. The acid must be neutralized.

Southern Polyurethanes (SPI) recommends 80 grit DA scratches for surface prep where possible. I religiously try to do that.

I will not, and have not, used POR 15. I want to get rid of the rust, not cover it up.

Best of luck.

Also while here , I need to cover the inside brace to the panel and its pitted pretty bad. I will ospho and then sand blast to clean metal. Should I cover this with por15 or since its clean metal wash and give a couple layers of epoxy?

This previously rusted area is obviously prone to future rust so I need all the protection I can get.
