Tech tip: prepping for paint use some permatex. Start by removing all the loose particles with a wire wheel and or brush. When. All the loose rust is gone give your project of coat of rust neutralizer and then a couple coats of a quality primer before several good coats of a quality spray paint, or other finish.
