Painting the floor

Is it necessary to use primer when doing the floors, or can I just paint right on it after I've treated the rust? Seen people do it both ways, but didn't really see any debate about it. I used Prep and Etch and on the rust and grabbed some rustoleum oil based high performance protective enamel

You can just use primer, no need for the paint.

I used both primer and paint, but I knew I wouldn't put putting anything on top of the floor for a while and the primer stays too sticky to be in there working.

I used Ace Hardware's rustoleum clone, oil based enamel primer.. Then Lowes had some white label no name brand grey oil based enamel paint for cheap so I rolled that down.

I cleaned my floor y scrubbing it with simple green, before my ospho. After that it just needed a good sweep.
