Thanks, I feel a little better about the rust now.

I went ahead and hit the rust spots with an angle grinder and wire wheel, wiped with acetone, covered with JENOLITE rust converter, sprayed with Rustoleum rust reformer-- and now a week later, I have this weird beading rust coming up in places. It's like little beads of wet rust, kind of greasy feeling.
I've had this happen in other spot of the car where I tried using Rustoleum automotive spray paint before but I figured it was because I didn't correctly prep the surface and the paint wasn't for rust.

This is where driver seat bolts in, behind the fuel door lever. Hard to get an angle grinder in there, and I'm not ready to remove that cross member from the floor (to get the rust beneath it).

What is this??
Is it because of high humidity? I live in FL and had a small puddle of water in my garage that refused to dry up over an entire week until I wiped it off with a towel...
Or is it because I didn't remove enough of the rust?
Suggestions how to get at tight corners like this with power tools?
