Question about Cars & Trucks
Our security door is starting to rust a teeny bit at corners where some of the bars meet. It currently has a glossy sheen. We want to paint it. However, we are not sure whether to: (1) Lightly sand the entire door, then use a universal bonding primer, followed by Rustoleum spray can paint. OR-- (2) Should we use a Deglosser instead of sanding? Then spray with the final paint color? Or MUST we prime first, then paint? Does Rustoleum have a PAINT PLUS PRIMER IN A SPRAY CAN? If so, we sure can't locate it anywhere. Any help you can offer is surely appreciated. BLESSINGS TO YOU !!

I don't think you can hurt it by sealing it from the outside. Your issue is the inside of the frame. The pillar is not airtight. Most of what you can use will smell for years if you spray WD 40 inside to displace moisture.
You might consider taking it to All-American car franchises or equivalent. They drill and plug body areas routinely to spray inside door panels,tailgates,etc. It would inhibite rust and unless you actually replace the metal when you want to paint the car, theres not much else you can hope to do. I live in the Michigan rustbelt area.

if you have sanded the areas with 400 grit sandpaper already, the next thing you want to do is move up to a higher grit paper like 800 and them 1000 and smooth out the area. After that, wet sand the area until it is smooth and feathered. Wipe the area down with a dry cloth. Luckily, the primer just smoothed out, but if not, apply a thin coat and allow to dry. Last, apply the basecoat, let it sit 24 hours, wet sand it, clean the area, and then clear it.

you dont have to prime it but youll have to remove the factory clearcoat on the old paint its a good idea to sand it to remove all the clearcoat and contaminants i rinse the car and let it dry before i paint one
