Also depending on how steady of finger you have, I find using one of the plastic triggers helps for steady and evenly distributed passes. They are a couple of bucks and can be found with the paint.

So for the spray paint, just any regular old kind should do once the primer is on. I'll probably do it in my sunroom for the smell but it is cold in there!

Any spray paint will do, just make sure you shake it well and if the room is cold then I suggest the hot water trick.

On top of that being in such a cold room I suggest once you spray it to let it settle then move it to a warmer location.

Sounds like a plan. Thanks for your help!

Sunroom? I'd hang some kinda shield made of plastic or cardboard, damn spray paint gets everywhere.
edit: and while your at crap tire, get some masks too.

Tremclad takes forever to dry. Do you really need a rust paint?

Yeah I got plenty of junk (parents junk too) that I can spray against. I may have a mask left over from my construction job in the summer. Good call.

Dumb thing I did. I haven't painted yet but I realize I should've bought a spray self etch paint instead of a can. It's better to spray obviously, but if I sand it afterwards anyways does it matter?

As long as you use light coats instead of a heavy coat with a paint brush it should be fine. I would wait a week so the paint has time to cure before wet sanding it.
