1. Cover area with dropcloths 2.. Remove loose paint and loose rust with wire brush Leave light surface rust as is. 3. Lightly sand whole railing for better paint adhesion 4. Wash railing and let it dry 5. Use rust inhibitor and/or Rustoleom primer to prevent rust from coming back and to stop stop surface rust 6. Paint with brush using Rustoleom glossy. I think glossy would look neat.
Step 6 is what I have a question about. Do I need to use the rust inhibitor separate stuff as well as priming? Or does the combination of the Rustoleum primer and paint do the same thing and therefore that's enough?
