Rusting Metal Louvers

We are about to paint the exterior of our house and I was wondering if there is anything that I can spray on a metal louver to stop or slow down the rusting. I'm just trying to preserve the new paint coating for as long as possible from the rust marks. Thanks

Sand it the best you can and then apply a rust inhibitive oil base primer. Most any exterior oil base paint will suffice for the top coat.

Sandblasting and painting with an automotive epoxy primer is easy to do or have done locally and will last a very long time.

Next step up would be sandblast and powder coat, that would be the last time you ever have to touch it!

Another option is to remove the steel louver panel and replace is with an aluminum or vinyl one.
