    Paint it on thick and leave it on there on contrary to what the directions say about cleaning it off. After it dries, you can prime and paint, or just paint. If its on a surface that needs to look nice, get some light sandpaper, say 240 or 320...Smooth it out best you can, then get some sandable primer and go back over that after it dries to get any remaining blemishes out, then your ready to paint.

    No matter where you apply it, you still need to coat it with some paint. The black appearance that it leaves is still porous like primer and needs to be sealed up.

    no no no no he's talking about rust converter, naval jelly must be washed off DO NOT PAINT OVER IT. naval jelly is often pink and is used to remove surface rust, it's not real good at removing the heavy stuff. it should be applied and let it sit for awhile and then remove with a damp rag. what he's talking about is rust converter this is brushed on and it turns black then it can be painted over but it should be sanded good first. what i have done is sanded the rusty area first then apply naval jelly then clean it real good then aplly some converter and then sand it down and the paint. I did this to my floors two years ago and have not had one spot of rust come back.

    I've used the rust convertor and the naval jeely the same way and haven't had any problems with it.
    But dont listen to me just do what the bottle says.

  8. The rust converter that I know of is called Ospho. Don't ask me what that stands for, though. Ospho is really good stuff. Just let it set for a while, like an hour, and then you can paint right over it.
