prepping a new Tub.

I bought another Jeep a few weeks ago as a parts Jeep. Im going to be using the Tub since it has no rust and my current tub is running flintstones style. So I'm going to be flipping the tub over this coming weekend. I'm going to be using POR 15 on the underbody and the frame of the jeep and I was wondering how much of the products I should order?
To those that have done it, How much would you recommend getting of the Metal ready, marine clean, and POR 15 coating?
Cant really seem to find where it talks about coverage area and I'm just trying to figure out how much to order.

Thanks for the help in advanced.
-Matt

OK so I've been doing a lot of research today and Ive come to one thing. It appears that the Zero Rust product is much better, the price is also a little better. Has anyone used it yet, it seem the process is relatively simple.
The one problem i'm finding is I don't have the ability to take the whole underside of the tub all the way to bare metal and I'm wondering now if I need to buy the Zero Rust prep step. No where can I find if I need to use it first. If anyone has used this product could you give me some advice?

Wish I could help, but I've never used either product. I used a product called Rust Seal by KBS Coatings... great product.

I've been using a product by master series. Good luck with it so far. Ends up being a local business. They were very helpful and was able to give tips and recommend how much to get. Some pretty strong stuff use in well ventilated area and use gloves. Like they tell you it doesn't come off your skin it had to wear off.

They might have a basic kit that includes the metal prep, paint, etc. If its similar to the product that i used you really don't need that much. Just get their small container to start, I believe a quart . I used small/cheap paint brushes and 3" foam roller to do my frame. Just my 2 cents

We'll I called and asked Zero Rust, the guy on the phone said something that made me feel uneasy about there product. So I went on and order the stuff from POR 15. I'll be setting it up Saturday and hopefully do the underside of this tub then. I'll let you know how it goes.

Oh wow, I finished the bottom of the Tub with the POR 15 products, that stuff is awesome!
I did all the steps and all can say is wow. The only the problem I got some on my hands and forearms, if the way this stuff is holding to my skin is any indication of how tough this stuff is i'm impressed. I'm very happy with everything I would recommend this product to anyone.
