Am I on the right track? Floor Preparation

So I got everything out of my bus which is a Blue Bird International and now I am on to the floor. I wired wheeled all the bolt holes and any loose rust. So my plan is to use Acetone, then wash, use Ospho, then wash, patch all holes with plain steel and OEM grade seam sealer, primer, then paint with Rust-Oleum. Does all that sound good? Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!

That's essentially what I did. The only thing I did differently was really got in there an scraped away at any flaking rust. Wire brushing is okay, yet I find on a wire wheel, sometimes it polishes versus removes rust.

I did use Rustoleum metal primer and then the enamel. I'm amazed at how tough it is.

I think what you're doing will work out great.
