underbody surface rust

I dont think its a big issue but i'm kind of a stickler with small things. Like perfection. The fram of my truck has a little bit of orange in places. and on the axle housings. I know that some people paint them and some people put bed liner product on it. What is the BEST approach to get a good long lasting clean black look?

And is there any basic how to's? Like do I do a bit of sanding first or just straight spray on or paint on?

Any help would be appreciated!

I just love looking under a truck and looks just as clean as the body.

Power wash under there, scrap, sand. Then get Stop Rust - Preferred 4 to 1 over POR-15 - Gas Tank Sealer - KBS Coatings - RustSeal in Colors

I wire brushed mine and painted it. I live 100 feet from the ocean so I will end up touching it up in the spring. We also do get snow here so they dump alot of salt on the roads here too. You could get that expensive paint por1 and paint it. Its made to go over rust and dries rock hard. That is a more permanent solution. its like 115 dollars a gallon though

POR 15 is good stuff, don't get it in your hair though. Or on your hands, it'll take 3 wks to wear off. Just took my '04 and had it undercoated last week cause i'm going to have to drive it this winter.
