Are there any Tectyl believers in here?

Fisholene first, then Tectyl? I had never heard of doing it that way. I thought it was a matter of using one product of the other?

I've had good results using Deoxidene which contains Phosphoric Acid. Paint it on, wait for it to turn black, wash it off, dry and paint.
It's available from automotive paint suppliers.

This might sound weird but I've found 'Penetrol' successful in stopping rust in the bottom of doors etc. Lower viscosity than water, so should go places water can't. Similar to Fish Oil....without the smell. (Also available from bunnings in a spray can to get in hard to reach places...)

I ended up going with Penetrol. The thing that convinced me was that a Painter told me that he uses the stuff on roofs and has never seen rust return after using it. At the end of the day, you hope for the best...
