I am working on an 1941 Chevy. To save time what is the best and safest rust converter for the money?

Plan is to use the rust converter to stabilize the rust on some of the interior surfaces, prime it with Rustolium and then paint it with Rustolium (have some mic. quarts left from other projects). The carpet, seats, door panels etc will cover up all this work so looking pretty is not required, working well is.

Also can something like this be used on the frame / undercarriage? I am not doing a frame off but more of a father son project with what we can do in our garage. So if applying this to the undercarriage and frame is possible great. Not a show car but a have fun 10 footer is the goal. Currently other than tires and a gas tank she runs.

I bought this at Pep Boys and used it on my wheels and for the money it cost I was very satisfied with the results.

The easiest and most effectively minimal way to protect the frame. Is to use a wire wheel to get the excess rust scale off. Wipe it down with a vinegar water solution and apply the rust converter. Then finally undercoat the entire bottom with something like Amsoil HD metal protector spray (or FluidFilm, or Cosmoline Rp-342 it's all the same). Its basically a thick oil coating that drys to a wax like film. Completely waterproof and actually lasts.
