Subject:
priming over rust

Jack Guzman from Maine
I have a set of large T hinges on a door I am painting. They are weathered. Coated with a fine even rust. I didn't have the time to remove and derust the hinges so I tried oil based primer. The hinges took the primer nicely.Dried to a nice even coat. I'm going to paint today. Does the primer absorb the rust? None of the rust was loose so I wonder if the primer will fail. Anyone got any input?
