G'day Chris, We use Galmet in a pressure pak container available most hardware stores. It comes in a variety of colours.
Give it a good brush first with a wire brush, then apply the galmet. Works for us, but has to be redone now & then. Cheers.

Hi, we always use Whattyl Rust guard, if yours is silver I recommend painting it another colour, we use grey. as silver always seems too thin and stone chips easily.
Also paving paint is good because it is a bit rubbery , we used this for years on the bike trailers used on dirt roads ,
Cheers Des.

POR 15 is the go. Not as cheap as a Killrust spray can but loads better. Check out the website. Used it on the chassis of my old Dodge. Easy to apply, looks great and is real durable.

Check out their sitePOR 15

chris,
I used Orminoid paint on the chassis of my van, that sat on the North Coast at Tuncurry for years and still had a perfect rust free chassis many many years later, pity the rest of the van rotted away.

It never "really" dries and you will get a silver mark on anything that touches it even years later.

It is bitumus and aluminium based and is available from Bunnings, well it was 4 years ago when I bought my last tin.
Colin.

Dulux "Ferrador" is an excellent product.
