It's never a great idea to paint over rust. What are you painting?

Use POR15, it sticks to rust better than bare metal.

Does that come in a spray? I haven't seen the stuff around the stores by me.

No spray bombs, you can mix it and spray in a gun; but it's not the perfered method. It works best if you just brush it on out of the can, the stuff is self leveling.

What parts are you referring to when you say "parts that can't be removed" ?

Primarily bolt on parts and a welded on rear bumper that have become permanent attachments to the jeep. Have to find my wire wheel for my grinder to get the chunky rust off the bumper.

I prefer a product called Chassis Saver. It can paint right over rust (within reason) you don't need all the special etchers, primers, and stuff like POR15. It's compatible with regular paints, so you can paint right over it. It is not UV stable, so if you paint something that is out in the sun, you will need to paint over it with rustoleum or some other paint. I got it at Painters Supply last time, I have also seen it at Tractor Supply Store. It hardens with moisture like POR15.
