Well i have a utility trailer that i use for my lawncare buisness. In the winter it is used to transport my atv / snow plow and is exposed to the road salt of wv. Needless to say...its rusty.
I have tried wire brushing and painting it twice before, and it always comes back, so this year i used a trick from an older fellow and wire brushed the rust off and covered it in Automatic Transmission Fluid (using a paint brush). He said it'll be messy, stinky and ugly, but stops the rust...I'd say hes right.
My question is, would i be able to roll on an oil based undercoating or paint over that ATF? I thought that if i used a roller that the paint would mix with the ATF and eventually dry. Any thoughts are appreciated.
