Default Best way to Preserve Rusted Implements for Display?

Got a couple of my grandfathers old horse ploughs etc that I want to preserve for the driverway/garden/fences

The first one I did I just hand wire brushed off as much flake rust as I could, brushed over with rust converter then airbrushed on grey oxide primer. After a few months mounted on a fence it has started the speckle and flake through the rust.

Anyone got a good technique for preserving these types of things, when they're already going rotten from sitting around for decades.
