Eastwood Internal Frame Coating

I just received this Internal Frame Coating from Eastwood today. Before I start this project...has anyone used it and do you have any tips or advice before I start this, or any problems you came across.
Thanks!

Tape up every single hole except for the one that the tube is fed into. Put a mark on the tube about 6" away from the end so that you know when you are almost coming out of the hole. I haven't done it yet, but it's on my summer to-do list along with POR15 the outside of the frame.

I have the Eastwood frame coating on my shelf and its on my to do list for the summer. I just want to figure out a way to clean out the inside of my frame before I coat it. You guys have ideas?

I initially used a flexible pickup tool with a magnet on the end. I pulled piles of rust flakes out. Then I blew compressed air in several times to move the debris to where I could get at it. I also stuck a shop vac hose over openings and then blew in air downstream. Prep work took a lot longer than actually spraying the coating in. Make sure you have plenty of paper or cardboard under the frame when you start to catch drips. As said above, tape off the holes you are not going to use to spray the Eastwood in. I used 2 cans per side and sprayed it in using 2 coats. The key was getting the inside of the frame CLEAN. Wipe up any spills right away. Once it dries I haven't figured out a way to get it off yet. Great product!

Yoopone, what did you do to prevent it from getting into the skid plate bolt holes?

Just run a tap through them if you have any problems. Take your time and make sure you get it really clean before spraying it. I didn't tape up my holes and only got minor overspray, though I would recommend taping them.

I didn't do anything for the skid plate bolts. I have had trans issues and have actually had the bolts out with no problem twice since I coated the inside of the frame. I do not think it is a problem.

What I meant by not being able to get if off was it dripped on my epoxy coated floor and I can not get it off the epoxy. No problem getting the bolts out though. I believe the threads. Cut it off.
