For bare metal, I use an etching primer, POR-15 for any surfaces that 
have rust. On the edges of metal to be welded, I use a "weld-through" 
primer. If there is a blind area say, inside the area that's repaired, I 
have used a product called "Like-90" that comes in a kit, with a 
flexible spray extension with a 360 degree nozzle that allows you to get 
inside panels that have been welded with a rust inhibitor:


It's supposed to "wick" into the crevices and is especially good if you 
have the inside of welds to cover after the fact.
