frame rust question

Folks

I have my gastank out and looking all all the rust on the frame, shock mounts, etc. Can anyone recommend a spay paint I can use to cover this up and try to protect the metal? Not much in the mood to pull the body off, sand blast and repaint...just yet anyway. Thanks in advance.

I would use Rustoleum paint.

Post pictures. If you are talking surface rust, it's not that big a deal and a little surface cleaning and a coat of any number of paints will do. If you have bubbling and flaking, that can be a big deal.

POR-15 is good but a slow brush process. I'm facing the same problem and want to start frame restoration this summer. For real bad large areas, like the rear spring socket I'm going to use POR-15.

For minor rust I'm going to wire wheel, use POR's marine clean and then spray on rustoleum.

In every case I would recommend the POR 15 instead of rust Oleum. Truly bonds to the rust.
