    yea I wasn't planning to just paint directly over it. I'll clean it up as best I can with wire brushes first to get rid of the loose crap. Its got loose paint flakes that I can just peel out of there, so that nonsense needs to go otherwise anything I put in there isn't going to stick.

    Think I need both the converter and the encapsulator? I was planning to just use the encapsulator.

    Inside the bumpers I was going to just wire brush and encapsulate. It doesn't need to be pretty, I just don't want the bumpers rotting from the inside out. The inner bumper support seems to be galvanized and in good shape so I'll probably leave those alone.

    We did the backsides of my dads front and rear bumper for his explorer around april 2017 after he picked them up from a junkyard. He just wire brushed them and then we put the rust encapsulator on. It is blistering through one year later in areas...we seen this after we removed the bumpers to sell them as the truck was getting scrapped. He didnt like the idea of applying the rust converter and waiting the two days, then applying the encapsulator and waiting the day before topcoating.

    Ive come to the point with things where if I want it to last I try to do everything possible to get it to do so.

    I personally would topcoat the encapsulator as it is kinda like a primer. Majority of primers should be top coated sooner than later so they dont absorb anything.

    Even something like rustoleum from a quart can should help out.

    I wish you were closer. I purchased a gallon of that rust encapsulator and have much left. A little of that stuff does go a long way.

    I'll pick up some of the converter too then. I don't feel like fooling with this again either. Painting over it isn't a big deal, probably will just use some black Rustoleum since I have it. Inside the bumpers same thing, neither spot is visible so appearance doesn't matter. Access is bad inside the cowl though. The hole is probably a foot wide, but the area goes damn near fender to fender. Its basically arm deep to get all the way back inside, and I'll be working completely blind. The only alternative, and one I will not be taking, is to drill a metric fuckload of spot welds out and remove the upper panel for access.
