Looks like it will...
NOTE: Chassis Saver is not intended as a “cosmetic” coating for finishing applications. It is sensitive to direct UV (sunlight) and its initial appearance will change over time. Its “RUST STOPPING” properties and corrosion resistance will never degrade but its color will shift from black to charcoal gray. Silver-Aluminum will retain most of its origi- nal look. If aesthetics are important, Chassis Saver can and should be top coated with a quality industrial or auto- motive finish. Any opaque finish is effective. Clear coating is not recommended as protection. See the Technical Data section on the reverse side for "Suitable Top Coats".

Sounds a very similar product to POR15.

I used POR15 on my Hensley hitch and Classic A frame year or so back and it came aout well.

I top-coated both the hitch and the A-frame after the POR15 because of the UV issue mentioned in the POR15 in the instructions.

To topcoat the Hensley, I found a rattle can orange rust paint that was a pretty good match to the original Hensley Orange.

For the trailer itself, I had a small amount left in a spray can of Airstream "Pewter" orignal paint. I took a sample to our local hardware store and they had teh equipment in their paint dept. to mix up a matching rust paint.

For not much more than I paid at JC for the spray can, I got 4 litres of the custom paint and carefully brush painted the A frame.

Probably not as nice a finish as if I had sprayed it but a whole lot easier without all the masking to do and it looks fine - got a lifetime's worth of touch up paint now too!

All of these are moisture cured polyurethanes.
