Hmmm... rust converted to paint??

Has anyone heard of or had experience with any of the products that claim to "convert rust to paint?" One of the most prevelent is called "Rust Doctor" and you can buy it at WalMart... thought it might be good on surface rusted frame rails, etc... from their website:

"Rust Doctor is a water based latex product that allows you to paint over rusty metal and then topcoat with any kind of paint without the need to sand or grind to bare metal This unique product chemically converts the rust to magnetite which is a very hard form of iron oxide. Because magnetite is inert (will not react with moisture and oxygen), it creates a protective layer the keeps the metal from rusting. In addition, a latex primer is left on the surface, allowing for topcoating with any kind of paint. In one simple step, the rust is converted to magnetite and the surface is primed."


Appreciate any input...
Thanks!

A few years ago I had a '79 Bronco that had bad rust around the rear wheels. I attached flares to hide the rust but first used one of the "rust converter" products with GREAT results. After removing all the loose rust I lathered on a hefty coat of the converter and that was the end of it. No new rust!

I have used the Permatex version and had good luck with it. After 2.5 years the rust hadn't come back through.

Eastwood Company has several of different rust conversion paints that are as good as they come. They also have correct color chasis black and so on to keep your truck looking sharp. I have used their "Corroless Rust Preventer/Converter" paint with excellent results as well as several other of their products. www.eastwood company.com

I actually tried the Wal-Mart brand at $3.95 a 16oz. spray can and was mucho impressed with the results! Sprayed it on the back side of some badly rusted rims, 3 coats 10 mins. apart and turned black and solid overnight! Top coated with grey engine paint, looks great.

I read somewhere on FTE that hirsch automotive sells something called miracle paint. Seals in the rust and even works better if done on a wet, humid day. I think you can type in some variation of hirschauto.com and find it. I hope I rememebered the names correctly.
