Hi @kingj, and welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community.
To give you the best chance of halting the rust progression, I'd recommend preparing the surface and repainting it. It would be best if you started using a Josco Scratch Brush by hand or a Craftright 5 Piece Wire Brush Set in a drill to remove any excess rust from the surface. Unlike the sandpaper, the wire brush will allow you to get into the screen's textured surface. Once you have given the screen a good scrubbing, brush the remaining rusty dust off it. You don't need to remove all signs of rust, just anything loose on the surface.
You can then apply White Knight Rust Guard Rust Converter to treat the rust and prepare the surface by creating a lasting barrier against further corrosion. Now that the surface is prepared spray White Knight 300g White Rust Guard All Purpose Primer over the screen. Once it dries, you'll follow it up with White Knight Rust Guard 310g Gloss White Epoxy Enamel Spray Paint or an equivalent colour to suit your door.
It might be worth spraying the door frame as well. That way, you'll have a screen door that looks brand new.
Please let me know if you need further help or have questions.
Hey @MitchellMc ,

I'll reach out via PM to get some location details so I can then find a suitable product available in your area.
Thanks @MitchellMc I think I found it but not sure!
That's the correct product, but in the light grey version @kingj. If you were spraying the door white again, I would suggest a white undercoat will be better as you'll cover it with fewer coats than the grey version.
I've contacted your local store, and they have been out of stock of the White Knight 300g White Rust Guard All Purpose Primer. Stock is now available and will be back in-store shortly.
