Yes it was rusted pretty bad thatís for sure. I took it down to a place that had a huge sand blaster and it sure looked like they did a real good job on it. But come to think of it now there could have been some tiny specks (pits) still in a few places on the bottom. The sandblaster guy said to get primer on it ASAP before rust comes back and didn't mention any acid wash. Also they recommended I use this type of paint as thatís what they use. Under there its in a corrosive environment constantly during the winter months. I just figured I didn't get enough on there to start with as this stuff is supposed to be some of the best you can use up here on semi truck and trailer frames on our salty winter roads. Even on top I noticed you can see in the picture there the epoxy showing through in spots. I did a couple things after this and I laid it on much thicker and that stuff seems to be fine.
I guess I can chalk it up as a "learning experience"! :x Just wish it would have been on a smaller scale! As sandblasting and that paint weren't cheap. :shock: Plus that paint is rather nasty stuff I learned ... after. Though this type of paint is a superior finish compared to the old alkyd enamels I can see the prep for it is even more critical to make it work properly.
When I painted this deck the first time when I built it (back in 1999) I just used cheap alkyd rust enamel and it lasted for years. I laid it on really thick especially on the bottom there. I had the deck flipped upside down back then and just painted on rustoleum really heavy. Of course over time it broke down and got rusty in spots. Back then it was new metal but not sandblasted. The sandblaster said for the best bond new metal like I used needs to be sandblasted to remove the mill glaze. Iím sure no farm implements get sandblasted at the factory before painting but they may have other processes they use.
