Well its much cheaper then the POR15 stuff.

POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating

A gallon would easily do the entire frame. I used maybe 3/4 of a quart doing the entire front axle, suspention, brake shields, and frame to about the trans crossmember.

The drips on the concrete in my shop dried like drips of melted plastic! Just saying you get what you pay for and would be a good investment if you plan to keep your truck for a long time.

I just got some Rustbullet to try out. A quart of the Automotive formula, a quart of the Black Shell and a 16oz bottle of the metal prep stuff. The paint was $50 per quart. Never used it before but I am going to try it out.

i took my V10 to an exhaust shop this week to put my doug thorley headers on. It took them 3 days, had to drill out 13 bolts out of the heads. It ended up costing $2500 (including 2 new O2 sensors). I'm glad I didn't sign myself up for that, though it was extremely expensive.

WOW! Thats a chunk of change! Did your o2 sensors break, or were they just bad? When I took the Y pipe out of mine the sensors were still stamped Motorcraft, but looked great and im still getting average mileage so I left them. I tried to keep my "while im in there" mentality under control for this job

cool would love to see how it turns out for you.

This stuff works very good. I sprayed it on the frame after I cleaned it as best I could with a wire brush and air gun. Still wiped it down with brake clean before painting though.
