Yes I would do both. Put straight penetrol on with a brush on the rusted parts and bare metal and then mix some into the paint as well (needs to be oil based paint). It makes the paint go on nice and smoothe. The penetrol I use would be too thick too spray unless it is made like that in a spray can. the one I get is in a tall narrow rectangular tin with rounded edges. It is very good stuff.
Cheers,

Where did you buy the penetrol?

I have asked at my local paint supplier, Repco and Supercheap and none had heard of it.

Thanks

There are two types of Penetrol that I have used (1) Penetrol
(2) Penetrol ESP.
The (1) is the one you get for the rust and you remove loose and scaley rust and then brush penetrol on the surface and wipe it off.

The penetrol actaully penetrates the surface rust and shuts out the oxygen and it will normally go anywhere that water will.

Adding it to the paint also gives better adhesion.

Australian Paints that sells the ceramic heat resistant paint for RV roofs that cuts down internal temperature recommend and supplies penetrol as the sealer and rust inhibitor to paint surfaces before applying the ceramic paint.

The (2) ESP basically is a you paintn it on any surface and then your paint will stick to it.

I normally have both on the shelf for my own use.
