Yeah, i checked out that website, but didn't really see what exactly that stuff is or whether it would be better than a zinc coating. From what i read it almost seems like a later of tar or something. In which case i guess or could be used (e.g. Instead of Amsoil HDMP) as a final over-the-paint layer. Am i far off anyone?

No that sounds about right. But it depends on the type of Por-15. There are different types. I would lean towards the paint type vs coating but really depends where you apply it right?

Anyone tried Rust Reformer from Rust-Oleum? Says it "bonds with rust and transforms it to a non-rusting flat black paintable surface and prevents future rust. Saves the effort of sanding rust to bare metal."

We do salt here, before is snows, after it snows,
and sometime just in case it snows...

NO rust issues, but I always keep the
road grime flushed off of the body and
out of the frame rails and the rock guards,
etc...

Limestone is just as bad in the summer,
it'll eat right through steel...

Here in Chicago it is a constant problem. I rinse it off once a week (unless it is too cold, do not want a rolling block of ice). I do not bother washing everytime as it is dirty again the next day anyway but I try to keep as much salt off as possible and I give all the hinges a shot of WD40 every month or so. I undercoated as soon as I bought it and touch up with 3M rubberized undercoating (just did it yesterday). As far as paint chips go, I keep a little bottle of touch up on hand and cover them immediately. If you have a little rust, a small piece of scotchbrite will take it off and then touch up. I would not bother with primer or clearcoat unless we are talking about large areas.

Yep. Used aproduct similar to that on a galvanized boat trailer. It worked better than spray paint. Areas still rusted, but considering it got dunked in seawater frequently the anti corrosion effect lasted longer.
are u planning to have your frame gray? because you shouldn't paint over the zinc paint. The zinc in the paint is a less noble metal than the steel frame so the salt attacks the zinc paint first thereby sparing your metal frame.
