Yes lots of grinding, very thorough cleaning, primer, 3 coats of paint all spray. Nothing fancy Rustoleum works for me just need to let it setup well before final assembly.I do have a question for you regarding the paint. Looks great by the way.
Did you grind down, prime the spray?
Here's what I did with a few of my projects and things worked out great. Wire wheel or blast what ever is warranted. I roll on with a good roller rusty metal primer (old red-lead)and let it cure well, then I mix my own rustoleum to get the green and again get a good 1" by 4" roller and go to town. Nearly no brush or roller strokes and a very hard coating.
