POR-15?? Anyone??

Has anyone painted their frame and/or underside with POR-15? I have been looking at it for my YJ. I was curious about whether it does everything they say it does. Surely someone has used it in our community.

I'd like to do the same thing. The years are catching up with my Jeep and it needs some protection.

Used it on a couple of TJ's, works well but you will want to top coat it, no UV protection. Topcoating it will make it even better.

RICHP, Do you remember how much you used on the TJ's? I was wondering if I bought a quart of each (first coat and UV protectant) would be enough?

My frame needs freshened up. They advertise the hell out of this stuff. I was just after some input from someone who really used it.

I am going to try it out. I will add it to my to do list.

As always thanks for the input. Someone will always come through on WF.

Dont use Rhino on your frame.

I worked in a Restoration shop, used POR15(Paint over Rust 15) and rhino lined trucks for extra income. Rhino is a good product, but it wont last on a frame. It WILL tear off.

Never por-15 a jeep before, but I did do a few datsuns, vw etc. Its not horribly complicated, but it is time consuming. Also, the outcome is based on how good you are w/ a paintbrush. To do it right, your gonna want to strip the jeep (tub off). The outcome is worth it though. It does what it says, and its darn durable (Wear Gloves! ) They make regular steel (black), silver aluminum, then different colors for steel, such as silver (for old brake lines etc.) and custom colors. We POR15d a datsuns engine block the same color as the car. Ask Penguin_in_a_cj how well that one turned out

Bought 3 quarts, pretty much used all of it. True about the tub off though, makes for a much neater job. Though a 12 inch body lift might suffice Use treated lumber or a couple of old gym sets and some comealongs.
