Hi all,


Im not doing so hot in the prep bare metal for paint area . I recently power wire brushed a piece that had welds , and just some cut through slits in it . I painted it flat black and set it outside . A few days later it rained on it and then a few days after that I saw rust at the welds and slits . For a small time operation what would be the best method of prep for items that will out in the elements . I was also wondering how the factories prep bare metal for paint .


Please help.


I did not find the right solution from the internet.
