    Rustoleum and TremClad are made with fish oil. I was advised to not prime but just sand, wipe clean with turp or paint thinner then paint directly onto the metal. Since I don't have an indoor area I used disposable paint rollers. The finish isn't like a car but it's a lot better than it was. Fish oil stops rust. A salt water fisherman realized this when a barrel of fish oil was accidently dumped on the steel deck.

    I hated that red but that is the color of it when I bought it, so that was the color it was painted again. My new trailer is white, much better!

    I am not sure how I missed the photos!! I was having issues one day and not getting anything from the forum, bet that was the day you all posted!! Thanks waresbear, I appreciate it. I am having trouble with the rust converter that we bought. Thinking I need to get the Corroseal instead. Anyone know much about this??

    Have your same delima on my steel Calico. I use Permatex Rust Treatment Part #81775 and Krylon Industrial Tough Coat. I have a homemade steel boat trailer that is launched in brackish water and have had no rust issues in almost 2 years. When rust happens on my horse trailer, if it is not bad, no need to sand it down to the metal, just hit the spot with a small paintbrush. It puts a primed finish on the surface. If it is bad, sand it. Don't spary over rust. It will come back worse. Good Luck
