Fertan is good. But my frame has no rust after the sandblasting. So Fertan makes no sense.

i've been using on bare metal to prevent flash rust. I mix 1/3rd fertan to 2/3rds water in a spray bottle. works great. I can treat bare metal and leave a parts outside for months if needed and they wont rust.
