The wax oil will be fun to get off to paint it. 

Look on Frost Restoration site, they have good paint that will be suitable. POR15 rings a bell for such things.

before you deceide what paint you are going to use...................wash the area you have prepared down with thinners....so there is NO GREASE CONTAMINATION MOISTURE....then whatever you use will have a good chance...........

personally i would first put on a very good primer....rattle can will do..........and if you use rattle can underseal like Dinatrol or whatever....put the can in  hot water for 5 mins.....it will spray alot better..........................2 or 3 thin coats...

That’s what I was thinking but can you still get original red oka as it was full of lead

No you can't, the modern stuff is pants and I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone uses it.

This is the best stuff for bare metal, been using it for years now and even when the topcoat gets worn away this base layer holds firm, it’s a pig to mix it’s soo thick but a drill mixer gets it done.

failing that apparently you can get real red lead from specialty boat places.

I have done this Chassie inside and out twice a year for last six years using wax oil with a compressor bloody messy job before 

I start welding I am going to give Chassie good inspection with little hammer to see how sound it is still not made my mind up 

about doing the job if weather ok tomorrow will get it on ramps and inspect it 

in the case of Nissan is preventions better than cure after it go snapped 🤭
