For the top coat por-15 makes a spray on "underbody black" paint you do over the por-15 when your done. Maybe that will help the fading.

Jslayton - you wanna do mine next? I'm sure you will have plenty left over haha!

TWIZTIDNINJA I use 3M Mar-Hyde one step rust converter it works very similar to Por-15. I've used both products and I like the Mar-Hyde it's water based so it cleans up easily. But when it dries it's very strong and doesn't need to be topcoated but it is recommended. It's also about 2/3 the price of Por-15. You can buy it at NAPA and other autoparts stores.

jslayton2 As soon as the weather breaks (been raining all week), I am doing my entire frame in POR 15. Everyone I have asked swears by it. Bought 2 gallons for about $250 shipped. Going to wire wheel the entire frame, degrease it, then paint it. I'll post when done and let you know how it goes.

Nickabis I've used a product called rust mort, worked great. If I needed to repair body work, I used a product called all metal. Its a bondo type product but metal. I don't know about on the frame

My frame has some surface rust and the drivers and passenger side panels where the JEEP logo is at is rusting.

I don't want to put a lot of money into it, but I would like something to put over the rust without taking the frame off.

So far, I have found a few products. What are your experiences with them?

POR-15
Eastwood Rust Encapsulator and Rust Converter
Magnet Paint Co. Chassis Saver
Krylon Rust Converter <- Cheapest and Aerosol - If this works, why not?
