Yeah, Nat, that's what I read on the Canadian Tire reviews.

Getting kind of ridiculous really!
Cloverdale Paint for Corroseal

Check your local NAPA for Permatex (no link, sorry)

Eastwood will ship their Rust Converter to Canada as well

Edited, removed Rust Check
yeah I got a hold of cloverdale about it, but they said they wouldn't get the bigger bottles.

and after reading the whole acidic thing when comparing it to Ospho I don't really want to pay a major premium to buy a bunch of smaller bottles of a lesser quality product.

I found a place I think I can order Ospho from though, it's just not local.

I disagree, do it right, do your home work and research.

No point in wasting money and learning the hard way.

exactly. I don't have an unlimited budget like some people do and I'm already trying to keep the costs as low as possible because I know they're going to add up in the end, so I want to do it right!

Re: Newbie questions about my build!

any other suggestions for grinding away the interior rust before applying the ospho?

I've been using a drill with a grinding wheel because it seems to work a lot better than wirebrushing, but it's still really slow going. anyone else have a better solution?

Get a angle grinder and a knotted wire wheel for it. Not some little $20 4.5 inch junk, get a real brand, 5 or 7 inch. You will do the whole floor in a few hours.

You can't convert a bus without a angle grinder.
