What Paint for Tradewind Frame??
 
I was wondering what would be a good anti-rust paint brand to use on the frame of a 1959 airstream I am restoring?? Preferably flat black. Frame :eek: has some rust but not a rust bucket. I would prefer something good but not too expensive and easy to get. Maybe Home Depot or some place like that. I do have a spray rig or I could brush it on. Is Rustoleum worth a darn?? Does anyone have any good Ideas?? Thanks, "Oxidized in Texas"

Por 15 is the best, however, since I live in a place where rust is not a problem, I used Rustoleum primer and final coat

IMHO: PAR-15 is supposed to be THE best, but expensive. Rustoleum is OK for some areas of Texas & the S/W. I wouldn't use Rstolm any where near salt water or it's spray & moisture...within 50 miles of the coast if 3 yrs. or more is expected.
