harnold This looked like a good idea for chassis rust proofing

nashguy207 Por 15 is awesome I have used it several times you do the prep right and it will last and stay looking fresh for a long time

Got it on amazon.

M.A.M. Also considering Rust Bullet. Seems to be in the same level as POR15, just not as picky with prep.

Thanks for the review. Lines up with most of what Iíve been reading elsewhere. Prep is key, donít get it on anything you donít want it on, doesnít like shelf life after being opened, Etc

I found one small spot at the very back of the frame that the paint came off, but I think it was probably a prep issue as well.

Yes, a LOT of disposable brushes - I just used cheap chip brushes from Harbor Freight. Was constantly picking bristles out of the paint, but it was a sacrifice I was willing to make. And yeah, def use a small cup, I had a small baby formula scoop I used to transfer it to keep the can rim clean because it will fuse the lid shut if you get it in there.

Oh, and I painted the chrome bumper black with it too.


Yeah, it wonít get driven much anymore, so I probably donít have much to worry about. Seems like most issues I read about are prep issues, sounds like POR15 is pretty anal about that.
