Rustins Anti Corrosion Metal Primer Red 1L is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read the instructions This is a first class coating with excellent adhesion and resistance to abrasion. The difficulty is in applying it. It must be above 10*C, but even at this temperature it needs a bit of thinner and regular stirring whilst applying by brush. With a bit more thinner it becomes just right for spraying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Top tip Before you open the paint, my top tip is to return it for a refund. Worst metal paint I've ever come across. Thick, gloopy, poor coverage. Nothing good to say about it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thin it to use it! Carrying out the instructions to the letter I applied the first coat to a metal garage door which had taken me a day to strip to bare metal. I had stirred the paint for at least 5 minutes before use, only to experience the paint having the same properties as treacle when applied with a brush and leaving a nasty rippling effect. I immediately removed the paint I had applied and thinned the rest of the paint using white spirit, only then did the paint adhere how I wanted it to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes it is Thick Yes this red primer is thick, unusually thick but I thinned it with some of the Rustins thinners, used the paint to breathe some life into my trailer. Once finished I cleaned the brush with the thinners and used the ‘dirty’ thinners to thin the paint then next time I used it as the paint. It was fine and covers well, it doesn’t need much to thin the paint and I would use it again. I might have enough from a 1ltr tin to prime my 6’x4’ trailer. I agree with the thickness of the paint but thinned slightly you get greater coverage which makes it good value and you don’t waste the brush wash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rustins Metal Primer Dreadful product. Can't be applied with a brush as it's too thick. Won't adhere to bare metal. Don't know why it is on the market. Avoid if you want to keep your sanity

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish I bought this and used it once, the next day it was like tar. Took it back for a refund.
