Iâ??ve used ospho on the Exterior steel stairs I built in 2005. I then painted 
over it with red metal primer. The steel was new but had some rust & scale on 
it that I wire wheeled. Havenâ??t had any problems with rust, though I did just 
repaint to change color.

I'm cleaning up and rebuilding a locally built, wood decked utility trailer. 
Typical angle iron/tube frame construction. The original paint is worn, a lot, 
and there's considerable surface rust. I took it to the quarter car wash and 
cleaned it up as best I could.

I'm not inclined to have the whole thing media blasted so the plan is, doing a 
section at a time, to use wire brushes and a detail sander to remove as much of 
the loose paint as I can, and then hit that area with rattle can primer/paint 
to "seal/convert" the rust I can't get off, then move to the next section.

Realizing there are products out there that supposedly work like magic, what 
actually does a decent job? I'm looking for durability and protection, not a 
car show finish.
