Restoration Cast Iron Tub


I have a cast iron tub with a good interior but badly rusted exterior. I'd like to just wire brush the exterior and seal it with a clear coat. I like the rusty look and just want it sealed. Any tips would be helpful.

Sounds good. But you might want to ask a painter for the best method.
