It looks like I am going to be doing some bodywork on Nan round her Rump so while I am in the area might as well address an issue that has been bugging me . I have surface rust on the floor under the carpet in the boot !!! I am so sorry and will get my Coat .......But while I am still here , it is very light and powdery . Once I have cleaned most of it up and got back to good metal which I know is there what is the best treatment fot it ?? Hammerite or a Rust converter .
Paint work and Rust proofingBest product ?

I have been looking at all the different products available on amazon so I could read the reviews etc I also looked at Pistonheads and Detailing World , It seems like a case of product loyalty in many cases . Do you go for one that is a 2 in 1 that is a converter and primer or just do it the old fashioned way and cut it all back to bare metal . Even when this has been done there are Pits in the surface which unless cut out will bubble up . I guess that if left like this it would not really matter much as it would take a long time and it would be under the carpet in the boot , BUT I would know it was THERE ! Being me and the tools I have I will end up cutting each Pit out with a Diamond Stone . I am one sad individual !!

Join the club mate!!
Oh, you already have!!
Seriously though, even if you grind out the rust, you will still need to neutralise the whole area before coating. As others have said there are many choices, so just use what you feel happy with.
The problem with the boot floor is condensation, so you'll need to do a proper job to ensure longevity. No short cuts, Ross!

No , not vented and I am in the process of fitting a super dopah new Bosch job which as far as I know is not vented either . As far as it being condensation , yes I agree. it has been suggested that fitting a lining of thin insulation to the underside of the boot lid
where it is single skinned would solve this condensation issue .
