I saw on KCW's website a few years back where they put it in a squeeze bottle with a long tube with holes poked in it and sprayed it in a bug rocker. There is also a guy here in Dallas that sprayed it from a gun onto a early bug tank and it turned out shinny and smooth. You just can't ever use that gun again.

Agreed.  Por-15 has worked well for me.
Problem is that I cannot get inside the rocker assembly, hence the spray

I swear by POR 15, available locally in Dallas. I did the pans of the
Super several years ago because I found a small spot under the battery
tray. I followed the directions, scraped the loose rust off, cleaned
it, and painted it. It hasn't budged since. I did end up with it on my
forehead, and had to sand (yes I said sand) it off. I dont think it
comes in a spray, but its the best thing I have ever used. I think
spray primers and the like just trap mostiure, not prevent rust.

    Thanks sammie.
    I've read Lee's article several times.
    Basically what he is saying is that they are all a crock of $h1T in
    regards to "encapsulation".
    So, probably my best bet is to either get some master's series, or some
    rustoleum spray paint.
    I really need something that is in an aerosol can, to spray the inside
    of the rocker assembly.
    Mainly I just wanted to see if you guys were familiar with any products
    that maybe nobody else has.
    I just mainly don't want to be redoing this in another 10 years...
