How to deal with underbody rust?

I just purchased a 2001 4Runner and it has a fair amount of rust throughout the underbody.

I want to stop the rust and protect against future corrosion so I've bought some Rust-Oleum products off the shelf of Home Depot and am wondering if this is the right way to go or if I should try something else?

Here's some pics of the rust and the products I'm considering using:

My plan has so far been to scrub off the loose particles, use the "Rust Reformer" then the Flat "Protective Enamel". Areas that are hard to spray or too small will get the Protective Enamel applied by brush.

Are the better ideas than this one? There's rust throughout some of the [COLOR=black ! important][COLOR=black ! important]engine[/COLOR][/COLOR] components as well but I can't reach everything so thought I could just hit the obvious parts I can reach.

Thanks for your help!

POR-15 = win. I've used that on a lot of my cars and trucks that see cold, salty, snowy Canadian winters, and they're all holding up well.
