In my experience I would sand the rust down as much as possible then there is ano automotive rust converting primer it's fairly new as far as I know but used it on my dodge pickup and has looked good on it and help up well on rocker lower door and wheel wells for over 1.5 years now
By no means am I a body guy but that's what I've done in the past with good results of course you can sand and bondo any dips or what not but I'm not sure what part of a vehicle your working on

OSPHO sold buy Home Depot or lowes is a rust converter.
Wire wheel the area's OSPHO it,patch the holes if any and then primer paint it.
Auto parts stores sell a rust converter spray from loctite that did well on my old Truck and the bondo and primer paint stuck to it very well on the body.
Good luck

I literally just got done researching the crap out of this. As of now I have a gallon of rust converter coming for the actual floor of the bus. When I pulled mine up I found I will need to patch the floor with a steel sheet in an area where it has rusted through and the cross brace underneath has rusted as well. I plan to use ospho on the cross brace to stop the rust after I clean it up well. Finally one the patch is installed I plan on coating the underside with Rust-oleum underspray treatment.

The stuff I ended up going with was fdc rust converter. Seemed to be the best bang for the buck and was on amazon prime shipping.

I picked up Total boat Rust Primer. I should be putting it on in the next few days. I figure if it's good enough for marine use, it should work well on a bus.
