Did you spray paint over it? I'd use a grinder or high grit sandpaper and take it down to pure metal then bed line it.

Yea if you didn't sand the rust down before you painted it you should take some sandpaper to it and get rid of the paint and rust so it's bare metal. Then I'd get some rustoleme that gets rid of rust or stops it anyway, then primer on top of that, a few coats, then a few coats of paint and finally some clear coat if you want it to look really nice.

If you don't get rid of the rust under the paint then it will just rust from under the paint though, and those floorboards are thin and a pita to put new ones down. If you put the new ones in properly that is.
