That sounds like the correct technique to me. Rust Inhibitor I use is Holts Kurust.
If the rusty bodywork is out of the way, and not notiveable to the untrained eye, I would use a brush paint such as Finnigan's Smoothrite to finish the job off, as the paint is very hardwearing.
Post a pic when you get the chance, and I can advise further.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
