evening all - currently taking a steel frame back to bare metal - new paint job on the horizon.

existing paint ain't great (condition & colourscheme). as it stands, there's a fair amount of paint that has been scratched, chipped etc. I've stripped most of one side of the rear triangle and where said scratches & chips where, there's darker patches that are the on-set of rust patches - metal isn't flaking nor is it lumpy, simply patches of discolouration.

Should I be treating these with a 'product' prior to primer or once the primer / full-paint is on will that be sufficient to protect the metal from the elements?

Example attached...

Cheers all...

Looks & sounds the job - funny how a google search brings up alfa romeo forums and de-ox gel :facepalm:

any implication on applying such a product on reynolds tubing - possibly 531SL?

Nah, it's quite benign to good metal.
