The POR 15 is a treatment, at least to me, for long term stuff seeing as how home galvanizing is not practical You do need to put something over it though. I have pretty much used Rustoleum for all my junk, when you use the correct prep work, Rustoleum primer and paint it seems to last a long time. Thats pretty true of any paint, use the same brand of primer and paint, they are more compatible and work together. For the record I do not believe in 'rust converters' if I plan on fixing it up I get all the rust off then go from there. The krylon products seem pretty good that I have used so I can't complain about them much, the two times they did die quick deaths was from my lack of proper prep work before I even shook the first can but I was in a hurry.

i agree, if you're gonna do it, get rid of the rust, don't treat it.

i most definitely will. This is after i grind, sand, and curse the rust off, which do you guys think will be best to use for all the spots that are completely cured and whatnot and to start to paint over.

I worked at a restoration shop for a year, and naturally we only used POR-15. They have an amazing product, and we used it almost every day. We had their "marine clean," their other product, not sure of the name, we just called it acid, as well as a couple of their different POR15 paints. We had the black, the aluminum, and the silver. Not sure if it was all high-temp or not, if not we had the same colors in high temp. We also had them mix up a custom batch of ford blue for an engine block.

I personally feel the treatment is much better than simply sanding, washing, and painting, and I use it religously on any rust repair I may be doing. Their system treats the acid and stops the oxidation process, than cleans the metal, followed by their POR15 paint which is advertised to be almost as strong as powder coat. We have hit frames that we painted with por15, as well as fender etc. with wrenches and what not on accident, and never had a problem with the paint chipping.

well i have no experience w/ por, but those who have like it, but if you do everything right, good ol primer and paint will last, and is a lot cheaper.

? I have won NUMEROUS best in shows in MD car shows at my old shop with POR15. It looks absolutely fabulous if you do it right?

You could just grind clean and paint with POR15, but thats not the way they do things. Ive always followed by the whole "Use the companys product as they tell you too" moto. Kind of like going to Home Depot, buying a Briggs and Straton Power Washer, and using it in a water gun fight

They have the liquids to properly stop rust, prevent it, and clean it, why not just do it that way? Plus, with their liquids, if you do it right, you dont even have to grind or sand. Their liquids will litterally kill the rust without using any elbow grease.

So what are the proper steps to using the por15 products, they list a couple of cleaners. I dislike using liquid cleaners underneath, it tends to get messy and after using that aircraft stripper stuff I'm leery of liquid strippers, that stuff hurts on bare skin....
