You're going to show after pics I hope. This is a good thing you're doing to maintain your equipment. I like it.

quick to use and cleans up with water. Then use Rust-o-ileum (sp?), primer
and topcoat. Maybe a step or two more but it should last a long time.
Just how I'd go about it...

There is an opening near the top for the pull handle that I think assists with moisture evaporation. However, I'm one mile as a crow flies to the Ocean and without the cover the wetness, moisture and rust takes over. I keep the truck covered as well when not in use.

I always use Rust-Oleum they have a rust primer in black that changes the Rust into something else. I brush it, sand it then prime it. let it dry for 24hr then paint it. The choice of paint is up to you. I have tried other brands over the years and always come back to the Rust-Oleum. I have even used it to paint a old 57 Plymouth back in the late 70's. It has been working on my 15 year old snow plow and I do it every 5 years or so.

Need new stickers and possibly some new air hoses. I filled the bags and there is a slow leak somewhere.
