After many years in the auto body business, paint ing over rust doesnt work, in reality it will actually speed it up , and while rust will spread, it takes a long time to go thru, grind it off and paint over and i no time its back and eating inward. you have to sandblast and get ALL the rust.
How ever today there are rust converting primers. Had a friend whos truck frame was in really bad shape, he Wire brushed it and sand blasted it some, to get the worst off and we applied this
then painted over it with a rust inhibiting paint , thats been about 4 years ago and thus far no sign of rust ..
There are other available ,some in spray cans , but it does seem to work IMO
