ok, i have got the battery box sandblasted, new pieces welded in where it had rusted. my question is what should i prime and paint it with to resist new rust? i considered por-15....but ill be painting over clean, rust free steel. should i use ospho, followed by regular paint. has anyone used a product called zerorust? any ideas?

I wonder if you called one of the pick-up truck liner places and ask what it would cost to shoot it along with one of their jobs? The inside only, I mean.
