Another rust post

I'm in Florida. Not to bad as far as rusty vehicles goes. But my jeep was owned up north at one point. It's in the shop getting the new axles and long arm's and 35's, so it was all tire up. And man was I pulling massive chunks of rust out of the inside of the frame. Outside looks great. I've got one slightly crushed middle tub mount that the paint chipped off of and is rusting a bit. And the rear coil buckets could use some TLC, but other than that it's great. I feel like my jeep is rotting from the inside out. What can I do? There's some many holes in this frame yet you can't rinse out the mud and dirt. I've tried before. Any solutions or do I have to wait for my frame to rot away and spend the money for a new one dipped in heavy duty paint?

That's what I have been hearing on here, that the frame may not look too bad on the outside but will often rust worse from the inside. Depending on how bad it is, you might be able to use something like Eastwood Internal Frame Coating. As far as getting the junk out of there first, I have heard of trying to blow it out with compressed air or a pressure washer, but have not tried either myself. Probably some others here will have ideas that worked for them.

Compressed air, a high power shop vac and a magnet on a long flexible arm worked great for me. Took 10 hours to do the entire frame, but I got it clean as a whistle before I sprayed my Eastwood in.

Okay is the Eastwood stuff really that good? I figured I'd be out $150 for something like that.

Just got first Jeep so have no experience with it as yet, but have heard good reports in terms of the application with the attached tube on it to reach far into the frame. I am planning on doing mine before fall.

I just picked up two quarts of POR 15 for my jeep The stuff works amazing and is highly recommended. Goes on with a paint rush and hardens fast. I'll be putting it on tomorrow if it's warm enough and not storming where I'm at.

So POR 15 is an absolute pain in the butt. Just FYI.

Hey guys. I'm going through the same thing on my inner frame. I've got it all clean by shop vac.,Air compressor, and long flexible magnet. I ordered the eastwood inner frame coating yesterday and it is on sale this month for 15 bucks a can and free shipping on orders over 50 bucks. I ordered 4 cans because that seems to be what most of the other people have used. Good luck

I'm taking a more aggressive approach. Frame looks fine from the outside...not so much on the inside. Everything is clean and it runs great so I'm opting for the safe-t-caps from autorust. I live in the NE and am going to have them install.

It is on sale directly through Eastwood. I ordered 4 cans and my bill was $66 and some change because I also had to pay sales tax because I live in the same state they are out of. I think the coupon code for the free shipping is FREESHIPPING. If not you can search it. That's how I got it. Good luck
