Apparently we'll both be spending some time under our babies ! Labor of love, right? Thanks for the input my friend!

Thanks man! No shortage of rusty spots under my Jeep! Just surface stuff right now, but since I plan on keeping this thing FOREVER, I want to deal w/ them now. Sounds pretty positive so far, anyone got a BBD?

Awesome. Thanks for the input! I'm going to put some A to Z fabrications rocker guards on, and I'm ordering them in bare metal. In addition to everything underneath, I'm going to hit them as well. I believe the same makers of POR 15 make a UV resistant top coat too. I might be all in.

I hear yah! If am going that route, I was thinking of going with their three step process. Any experience w/ the product?

POR 15 worth it?

Alright, I've seen hype and heard praises but is POR 15 worth the cost? Once the snow and ice isn't in my driveway, I plan on getting all up under my baby and squashing any possible rust on my tub/ frame. I live up here at the end of the " rust belt" in New England, and am looking for the right product, not an overpriced snake oil. Thoughts???
