This is my 78 F350 Custom with the 140in wheelbase, factory A/C, PS, PB, with a 400 and an auto C6. Doing a full frame off resto. Engine to get a full rebuild and performance upgrades, new interior, fresh paint, and rims. Here is what I started with and where Im at so far......
Chassis pressure washed
POR Degreaser and then POR Metal Prep
This is just one coat of POR-15 Rust Preventative, still have to apply a second coat then POR Top Coat in Gloss Black. This is a must do if you plan on doing a frame-off resto on anything, great product.
Looks like a solid truck! I usually don't like the cleared over patina, but I think that truck could really look good with it. Nice looking frame as well!
I thought about that, it could have pulled it off, but the rust issues it had really needed attention. So now I'm going all out, trucks getting lowered, painted metallic stripes, and a sound system. I also have more pics to upload, I got the new floor pan welded in place.
The rust is really bad under the drip rails above the doors, the door corners, passenger side floor, etc.
Now to the POR-15, only time will tell, but it looks like a really good product. It dries rock hard,self levels, and has a ceramic like feel when dry. Its been two days since the second coat and it is holding a nice shine. The next step I'm going to do is apply there Gloss Black Top Coat. That will be sprayed on. The other was brushed. Rustoleum is nothing compared to this.
Thanks, more pics to come, I already have the paint, polyurethane bushings & mounts, cab lights, etc. and still more to come.
