Age old question about rust prevention

Hey everyone!

I know this question has likely been asked a MILLION times so if you need to refer me to a different thread, please do - I tried to look and found a few, but I'll throw the question out there anyway:

What is the best product to use to coat my frame for rust prevention?

I have the body off and my frame is not that bad (i.e. no fist-sized holes!). I can actually see some of the original coating on the frame.

I'm looking probably between Por 15 (though I hear it is touchy with following procedure and needs a topcoat) or Eastwood Rust Encapsulator (Is it as durable as Por 15?).

I Googled, but I trust you guys more.

Alot of my friends sanded on off rust they could, rustoleumed the rest, and then undercoated it with that rubber undercoating from any auto store.

17 and ignorant

I used the Eastwood Textured Rust Encasulator on the center portions of my frame when I replaced my skid plate and nutserts last week. Intend to do the rest soon. Haven't had it on the road yet, but I scratched at it a bit to see if it would hold up...the texture knocks off naturally, but it holds pretty well. I only used the textured because it's supposed to be twice as long lasting as the non-textured, I think they mean the epoxy formula and not due to the texture itself

POR-15 is bound to have more fans as it's been around much longer. The Textured Encapsulator is relatively new. It's discussed more in this thread...
