    I would not use POR15 on a new floor, the stuff is designed for rust or bare metal.Use a epoxy or 2k primer after you lightly scuff the surface, just make sure it's waterproof.
    After you weld it in it may also be a good idea to rust mist the whole underside including the channels that run across the floor underneath.

    Yup, thats what it is.
    3M makes it in aerosol cans, called rust fighter
    Other companies also make similar products.
    Go to your local auto parts store and ask for wax oil, or rust fighter spray, they should be able to hook you up.
