Don't paint it. You can purchase wire to replace the floor, it is quite simple.

I agree. Replace the floor.

I've used galvanizing spray (Rustoleum) in a pinch, and then replaced the floor as soon as I could. I'm not sure how it would work long-term. I've used it on the 'body' of the cage without problems.

Since it is the bottom of the cage that is in question (e.g., "rusty"), I strongly recommend replacing the wire... unless you prefer to encourage sore hocks in your rabbits? LOL I think not.
