Rust

What is the best way to paint your frame and everything else under a jeep without removing the tub?

Rustoleum bed liner, it's in a spray can and just spray everything you can see

I use a spray can to touch up my frame, axle, steering and suspension all the time. If you have a lot of rust I would use a wire wheel or similar first then paint. You can use regular paint, bed liner or something like POR-15.

Eastwood internal rust encapsulate for the inside of the frame, POR-15 for the outside.

How would you go about cleaning the inside of the frame? I have been just blasting the presure washer through the holes but it doesn't get everything.

When I did mine I used a combination of thing. The first thing I did was like you and used the pressure washer and got as much as I could.

Then I parked on an incline and from the front I stuck a hose in and turned it on and let it run until the water was clear.

Then the work starts! I put it up on jack stands and used stiff bristle brushes, scrapers, and a magnet on a wire and kept at it until I was satisfied.

Not a hard job, but it was still a pain.... but you sure feel better when you spray in the rust encapsulator and know it is sealed. I used four cans, two per side, but three would have made it. Have fun!!

rust

Make. sure you have drain holes drilled.After the washing my real work. began.I made some 9-12" coat hanger wire tools shapped to pull the rust to my drain holes.At times. I used the shopvac or air nozzle to. help remove the rust or at least get the rust to the holes to where I could reach it. with my "special tools".If the rust.was too large to get out I would grab it with needle nose plyers and pull it til it broke up into smaller removable pieces.After 2 or 3 times of 1to 2 hrs of this lying on a creeper I would drive it for a few weeks or months I would check for rust---removing it if I found any until I no longer found any rust at all.
Then I used Eastwood internal frame paint inside.I also electric wire brushed the outside and painted It.I will proubably repaint the inside every 9-10 months for a couple of years.Also I am going to put fluidfilm on the outside maybe every year or so.That is a new product to me but some jeepers seem to like it.I realize down the road some welding and patching etc will be in my jeeps future but I truly feel I have postponed that dreaded date for a while unless I m lucky enough to find a good donor frame.Time will tell.On a finishing note I will say that I feel until ALL the rust is off the inside bottom of frame you are fooling yourself if you think that internal frame painting will handle the maintenance inside.GOOD LUCK on your frame.We all need a little of that dealing with our jeep frames.
