Ah that's what I'm worried about. I feel like it's gonna cause more problems for me in the long run. I'm gonna try the fluid film first and see how that goes. I know a few people who swear by it as well.

A buddy of mine use fluid film on his vehicles before winter ever year and swears by it.

As for the Por15/chassis saver what about putting it on bolts? Does it cause bolts to seize?

Im thinking something like the fluid film would be better cause its not permanent. Ide rather have to reapply then need to change a part and have to deal with stuck bolts

What do u guys think?

I was reading Fluid Film is good, ever hear of it?
Yes Por15 is the best thing you can get to save a frame from rest, I work in a body shop and we have used it before it works great. you have to under stand of how to put it on thought.

1.grind lose rust
2. get the por15 first step rest preventer
3. put the por 15 on evenly everywhere (it sticks better to rust)
4. get engine base coat paint can use a spry can (i like flat black) and cover everything with the por15 (it seals it alittle)

also remember por15 is a preventer does not stop it it just gives you frame about 5 more years maybe more if you put it on right

hope i helped

How to deal with rust?

Hey guys so my Yj made it through its first winter ( i bought it last year and it was garage kept for over 15 years) but i noticed its getting rust spots on the frame, axles, leaf springs, and drive shafts already it looks like the bottom of the tub was already lined with some kind of rhino but the frame is bare. So what should i use to keep rust from forming on the frame and other stuff? thanks!
