Treating rust - scratches and stonechips - POR15, Bilt Hamber?


I've got a 1999 CLK ... and with German build quality there is a fair amount of rust!

Now I’d like to treat it, and stop it in its tracks!

I've been reading up all over the place.
  • I've found that Hammerite doesn't seem up to much.
  • Bilt Hamber seems new and a possible good bet, but no idea on its longevity.
  • POR15 seems highly recommended, but I only see examples of it being applied to out of sight areas.

My thoughts were to go the POR15 route.

One small stone chips: scratch out the rust, use POR 15 marine clean, then Por15 Metal ready, before carefully putting on POR15 preventative silver paint, then POR15 tie-in, lightly sanded if rough, then Merc touch up paint.

For larger areas, I would do up to the POR15 tie-in stage.

Has anyone got experience with this? Any thoughts?
