Rusty nail heads - exterior

I'm in the process of paint the exterior of my 1950 ranch home. It's been approx 8 to 10 years since I last painted. Besides the normal scrapping & sanding, I now have to deal w/ nail heads that are rusty and are appearing all over the house. My siding is 8" lap Cedar siding. Does anyone have a solution or recommendation on the best approach to fixing this problem?

Clean, scrap, and apply a stain killer like oil based Kilz over the nail heads.
