Has anyone used POR-15 or Rust-Oleum?  What's your preferences?  I looked on POR-15's website and couldn't find if you can apply any primer and bondo over the POR-15 or just their products.  Any knowledge on this?

Where do you get it?  Is it a spray or is it canned?

It is a green liquid that comes in a quart or gallon jug.

I have had good results using a combination of a spray-on rust inhibitor liquid like Rust-Block, followed by Rust-Oleum paint. By using a spray on liquid type of inhibitor first, it allows better penetration into rusted areas that Rust-Oleum paint alone fails to achieve. The spray-on inhibitor liquids are clear so you can see if you need to treat an area again. When using a rust inhibitor paint alone you can't see if the rust has been completely stopped and, addition coats of paint won't do anything to penetrate any rust that remains under the first coat of paint.

I used por15, cant say I'm happy with it for how much it cost. It rusted through in a few spots. I didnt use metal ready on those spots as I just got done grinding down the welds, no rust, so I cleaned it and painted it on. A year later its poking out.
On the floor and frame, I just metal ready and followed the instructions and so far its held up.
If you get por15, do not get the gallon! If you dont put the lid on correctly, it will harden and it takes a week to get it off your hands
Purple power has some rust remover, you got to remove most of it to get better results unless you soak it. I'll use it again
