I would not rattle can it, but would brush paint it. Home Depot sells Everymore paint which can be used over metal surfaces. I am sure there are lot of paint that will cover metal. Have you thought of covering the area in no slip material?

Be hard to get er' to match, 1972 paint containted lead. You'll have to paint the entire floor, use a poly-type paint and just paint over the existing paint, don't try to strip the old stuff off!

I am in the process of repainting the interior of my '82 Lund Pro-angler. The factory paint was peeling of in pretty good size pieces. I went to the local CarQuest store and they sold me some Aircraft paint remover. This stuff worked great. Just brush it on, and wait a few minutes, old paint just bubbles and can be scraped away. Took me about 6 hours to strip it all. I have a carpeted floor, so I only did the side walls, transom area, and bow cover.

I felt I needed to strip the old paint off, because it did not make much sense to paint new over peeling paint(new would just peel again). Now all I have to do is use an aluminum cleaner and then repaint. I am going to use a tintable bedliner. This can be tinted any color and will match very close to my new seats. It will roll on and depending on the nap of the roller, I will get a durable not slip finish on the inside of my boat that will take a beating from feet resting on the walls and so forth.

Good luck on your project!!!
