Rust effect what to use. Paint? let it rust and lacquer it? or something else?

Hey guys.

Well most of us want to "Prevent" rust on our beloved Fiats

Not this one!

For those who do not know i am styling an old Fiat Panda 4x4 in a Post Apocalyptic style. The name of this project is:

☢ Project Fallout ☢

Amongst all the things i need to do (even just to get it road worthy!) I am looking at Rusting parts of it. i'm not looking for a "Rat look" i want to take it to "Scrap look"
Check the project thread out...

can anyone recommend me a good way of getting a realistic rust effect, yet keep the car protected from the elements.

the effect i am trying to go for is something like this:


Thanks all!
