Why not just go over the whole thing with TSP and then hit it with DTM (direct to metal) bonding primer and then hit with eith a DTM paint or even industrial enamel? Obviously the worst part of the whole process would be the TSP if only because its so time consuming.
I assume you are talking about self etching primer? I grindered down to metal in some spots covered with rust oleum self etching(galvanizing primer) and in the areas I painted over with another color rust oleum brand either bubbled or didn't stick? Finger nail test?

Please give us more info. On your idea. And how it will work in a flexible world.
Never been a painter and my wife has taken over that area? And no disrespect to you but how will a solid wall paint that don't move work on a moving structure?
I ain't ready for paint but if water tower paint or real steel tank paint was the answer? Then I passed up many a 5-gallon bucket left overs cause the sprayer didn't pick it up?
