Just curious. Does this need to have any sort of primer before spraying?
Instead of me telling you .

Zero Rust - A VOC Compliant Phenolic Alkyd Primer Coating:
ZeroRust is a direct metal phenolic modified alkyd rust and corrosion control a coating, which puts down an impermeable rust proofing barrier at the steel level. ZeroRust has two superior traits (1) it provides maximum adhesion to steel or maximum rust prevention - this is called chemical affinity. (2) Its dielectric ability is extraordinary - steel is isolated from the electrolysis process, which converts steel to rust. (In laymen's terms, this rust prevention starves the oxygen from the substrate, preventing oxidation.) Zero Rust makes an excellent Original Equipment Manufacturer “OEM” coating and is routinely used on new trailers, new structural steel, new oilfield wellheads & manifolds, new mining equipment, new pump & manifold systems, new power generation skids and new tanks. Zero Rust can give your products the rust protection and prevent rust from appearing again.
Continued refinement of the ZeroRust formula has netted ASTM-B117 salt spray testing results exceeding 2000 hours at 3.5 mils dry film thickness (d.f.t.). This equates to 600 hours per dry mil, which was previously unheard of in an air-dry system. The Zero-Rust rust protection performance exceeds that of commonly used red oxide, DTM Acrylics, water-borne alkyds and epoxies on these types of surfaces. ZeroRust rust protection performance has been confirmed by industrial, commercial and marine industry. Black and Red Oxide Zero-Rust are recommended as the primers for corrosive services -- including marine, coastal and industrial surfaces. The effectiveness of Zero-Rust on bare steel surfaces is optimized at 2.5 to 3.0 mils d.f.t. over profile. Rule of thumb: Zero-Rust should provide five years of rust protection for every a mil d.f.t. With the addition of a topcoat or a thicker film of Zero-Rust to take the ultraviolet rays, sealing protection can easily double.
Yeah I read that, but saw somewhere that someone read the site and saw some sort of powder/primer??
What I have is a winsheld channel that has some pretty severe pitting pretty much all around it, but nothing through after blasting it. Which is good cuz I cant get the panels to fix it anyway. So my thoughts were this...and maybe you can tell me if this is the right process.
Its already blasted, so would I want to first hit it with Picklex, then fill the pits with some short strand to level it (and water resistant), then either some Zero Rust or epoxy, then paint? I wasnt sure if filler can be used over Picklex or if I would even need Picklex here?
If there is any chance that there is rust in the pits then use Picklex to stabilize it. If there is no rust then use epoxy primer then filler to level the surface then epoxy primer again then 2K filler primer, block sand and apply top coat. Zero Rust is not needed.

Just as a side note, I recently met the inventor of Zero Rust. He is from my area, and knows a friend of mine that I do business with that owns a sporting goods store and carries another product he created called super J, also invented some sort of elastomeric paint.
The license plate on his car says ZRUST
