Priming Corrugated Barn Roof - Advice Needed

    Hi folks,

    Just looking for some advise on how I should go about priming this particular surface on my barn roof. The sheets were put up in the mid 90s and so are the more heavy gauge metal. The original oxide coating is peeling and flaking off so I've sanded the whole lot down best I could, (please see some photos attached). As you can see I've gotten back to the bare metal on some parts but there is a good but of old paint on it which was also sanded back a good bit. Could anyone advise on a type of primer that would adhere well on this mix of bare metal and paint so that I could then apply a standard red oxide finish on top? Cheers.
