Trailer paint.

Hi guys,
My trailer has some flaking paint in places, so I was wondering what paint I should touch it up with? Would hammerite be ok?
Cheers,
Geoff

I take it its not galvanised.
Bonda primer then chassis black should provide good protection.

Galva Freud for me too clever stuff really, stops your trailer from getting rusty and helps sort out any lingering Oedipus complexes you may have

I have not used this myself (and I have no idea how much it costs) but I'm told it's very good. They claim it's better than galvanising in salt water.
