Default Exterior nails on claboard bleeding rust

Prior to us starting the painting there is brown rust that is bleeding through about 40% of the nails in the clapboard on the body of the house. I am assuming they didn't use galvanized nails. What product (cover stain???) is best to use to spot prime and avoid the rust from bleeding through again.

My finish coat is a darker gray Duration latex.


Thanks
Mike

I'd try something designed to block the rust and help prevent it from returning, i.e a primer with a rust inhibitor. Rust-oleum might do the trick- they have one labeled "rusty metal primer" that comes in a dark brownish-red color. Not sure if this'll solve the problem completely, but good luck regardless.

I would dig out whatever you filled them with and use putty then an oil primer to spot them with. That should hold it back. If they haven't been punched in then you need to do that otherwise whatever you put over them will fail sooner or later.

You can prime the whole house with Chemcromic (sp?) from SW Works great
