Rust question.

My 72 has a wood floor bed that is not in great shape. I picked up a steel floor bed with the side door toolbox for it. It is in relatively good shape, I pulled most of the dents out of it, and welded a new bottom of the toolbox hinge support piece. The box is in good shape but has a couple of rusty spots not rusted thru. How/what should I treat them with?

Re: Rust question.

I would spray them with SEM Rust Mort or Ospho, neutralize them after, then spray with "direct to metal" epoxy primer. After that, body work as usual.
