Has anyone put Por-15 over a rusted area that has been treated with a rust converter product? Naturally I read the instructions after I applied converter

Por-15 won't seal the metal properly. You need to remove the rust converter and prep the surface using Marine cleaner and Metal prep before applying the por-15.

Use a real 2k epoxy. If not, just brush on rustoleum. At least Rustoleum is cheap

por 15 is much better than rustoleum albeit more expensive. i have done several pans with por 15 and many years later (19) they look as if i had just painted them. surface prep ,as mentioned, is the key. it will discolor in sunlite tho. a cheap alternative is phosphoric acid like ospho. i found an even cheaper source at tractor supply. milk stone remover is almost 100% phosphoric acid... then top coat.
