Question Paint over rust?

recently bought a 99 wrangler and i'm in the process of replacing the floor pans, front fenders as well as rear panels around the drivers and passenger side wheels. the rust that i cant cut out without doing extensive body work i'd like to clean up with a wire wheel or sand blaster the best i can, then coat it with a paint that is made to go over rusted surfaces. trying not to break the bank$$ as well, i would like both brush on and spray on paints so i cant get into and cover most rusted areas. any of you out there have any recommendations on which paints work? any help is great! thanks

Home Depot sells some stuff (I forgot the name) that is a rust neutralizer. I think it is supposed to stop the rust from getting worse. It is in the paint dept and comes in a gallon plastic jug (I think it's a gallon). It's blueish in color and you paint it on with a paint brush or it can be sprayed on with a pump sprayer. Leave it over night and either paint right over it or wash it off and then paint over it. When I was a kid I think it was called Ospho or something like that but that is not the name on the jug.

POR 15 is a great product that kills rust and prevents it from continuing. Where rubber gloves when applying. It's hell to get off your hands! Lol

Check out POR 15. It's a bit more pricey, but from what I've read, it's worth it.

Rust spots I usually put osphos on and they go back and paint after. If rust is pitting you can ospho then sand it smooth then paint. Rust never comes back

Quadratec sells POR 15. It is the correct product to use. Like everyone said, where gloves and an old long sleeve shirt. Second time I used it I took masking tape and taped my sleeves to my gloves. The stuff sticks so well that I wore it for over a week the first time!
