POR15

Postby jahlborn » Thu Apr 10, 2014 3:07 pm

Has anyone actually used this stuff? Is there anywhere around here that has it? And how much do you think I'd need to do the unibody and underbody of the comanche? Thanks.

While I've not personally used it, it has a good reputation in the hotrod/muscle car world... other than being expensive.

I'm going to be ordering some soon for my Stoopid Duty.

Here's yet another option, don't know if its any better or worse than the Chassis Saver or POR15

I've used it before, one quart covers 96 square feet. It works pretty well, but you have to prep steel that isn't shit otherwise it will peel off. Once the stuff sticks though it's definitely not coming off any time soon.

If they're going to blast it, then why not line-x the underbody? I've used por15 many of times and it works great. No real need to blast the application area, although, it is a good step to take. May find some holes that you didn't want to find.

Ive patched it pretty good. Theres a good layer of gunk on the underbody and I think having it blasted will be worth it in the long run. Plus if I do find a weak spot, I can fix it now while its down to bare chassis.

I picked up one of these up, haven't tried it yet. Looking forward to some warm weather to try it out on a few things.

I want to revisit this thread. I searched POR-15 and its the first thing that has come up.

Does anyone have personal experience with POR-15 vs. chassis saver and their prep work? I have been doing some research and hear good and bad things about both. I have some rust on my DD that I am trying to slow down.

Two years ago I used the rustoleum rust converter in an aerosol can and am not pleased with the results. I preped the surface with a wire wheel attachment on a drill and some 150 grit sand paper by hand.

I haven't personally used POR-15 yet, but two of my friends have. After seeing the results of both I will say unless you are willing to do the prep work EXACTLY how the company tells you it's not worth doing. If you do the cleaner and the etching stuff and paint directly on following all of the steps it seems to turn out great and last at least 5+ years up here.
