Spray Paint Recomendations

People on this forum ofter refer to expoxy primer and spray paint but I have been unable to locate it locally other than the cans used for kitchen appiances, which tend to be in white.

Looking to blast and paint a bunch of the bit and pieces that are rusting.

I've had really good luck with everything I've ever painted with the expensive etching primer spray can from POR 15. For top coat, I've also had good luck with the custom spray cans from Tower Paint.

To help make sure my paints stick well to metal I use a chemical metal etch first. I use Jasco. It comes as a concentrate - I mix a working solution in a used 409 spray bottle and apply it from the spray. It takes about a minute to work. You was it off - and dry. It removes all oils greases etc and puts a fine tooth to the metal so your primer or top coat . I use it on stainless and aluminum parts big and small.

On this topic... What is the best way to prep metal that was originally powdercoated, but has some major flakes off and rusting on it for paint? Do I have to somehow sand blast/sand off the remaining powdercoat? or can I just hit the areas that are rusty, and assume that if the powdercoat is sticking, there is a good seal under it, and a full top coat layer will seal it up again?
