Re: eastwood rust encapsulator?? good/bad (pigbladder)

im looking for a product to paint over small rust pits/bare metal...is the rust encapsulator good for that

I've not used that product, but their Oxisolv Rust Remover worked really well. Their products have generally worked as advertised, and they are big in the restoration market. I would have no hesitations with any of their products.

It's a good product for your application. Looks like a traditional red-brown heavy-bodied oil based primer (ie like 'red lead'). It brushes or sprays on nicely and adheres to both metal and existing paint. (the Por 15 drawback - it advises only use on bare metal, not existing paint).
I used it, after power wire brushing, to prime surface rust patches that had grown under the undercoat in the engine bay & front floor area of my A2 golf (you know the kind). Also used straight on some very rusty brackets in lieu of sandblasting them etc.
