Thumbs up

I like Rust Restorer, (simuliar to por15) but cheaper. This paint is tough. Paint right over rust, very hard, great gloss finish. Not to big on the idea of corrosion covering materials, I sandblast or grind all rust out, then paint this over it.
Mainly used on frames, firewalls, but could easily be sprayed on panels.
35$ a quart



give this a try this is the @$it!!!

I used POR 15, it really does work good, i usually scrape off all scale with a wire brush and put POR 15 and one of their top coats on. That's how i'm doing my frame/floor.

Check out Rust Bullet. Easy to use and needs very little surface prep.

Hey mudding - welcome to FTE.

The guys have given you good options for a rust paint, but as for the converters, I prefer either Ospho or Metal Ready. Ospho has a longer curing time than Metal Ready, but both work very good. I've used both on our 1941 PU and on many other projects. Oshpo is much cheaper and easier to come by. You can find it at most any paint store and I get mine at Home Depot.

Mind you though, it is just a converter. You will still need to paint over it to help keep the rust from returning.

Do a search of this forum for Ospho and you should find much information.

If you are not going to sand blast. Use picklex the rust bullet. Nothing else comes close. Stay away from those products that turn black. they are junk. If you are going to sand blast do the same picklex and rust bullet. Follow directions.

mud, I use OSPHO all of the time and have for years. IT's cheap, covers alot of surface, can be brushed or sprayed on, and can be painted ovre with minimal prep ( just remove white residue). I restored the frame on my 84 Bronco, and have several pics at superford.org I also have some pics of OSPHO vs "Restore" rust converter. That product is fair, leaves a clear, hard coating and a black color, can be painted over. JSM84

Most auto parts and some harware stores will have OSPHO. May have to search a few places to find it, and don't be fooled by imitations. Cost should be no more than $20/gallon, it's like $15/gal here at the local NAPA. Alot of it gets used here along the Gulf Coast.

I tried to post a link to my SFO gallery, but it failed. Go to www.superford.org (or www.supermotors.org), and look in my gallery for the 84 Bronco under axle pics and rustproofing frame.

I found something at Advanced Auto called Right Stuff. It looks like green koolaid. I pulled my front suspension apart and while it was out I cleaned the grease and dirt with a power washer. I then sprayed this stuff on it and let it sit over night. The next morning the metal was smooth and almost a gloss black. There wasn't alot of rust there to start off with but a 30 year old i beam has a little. I wasn't worried about them rusting through but I thought that they would look better not rust red. I was very pleased. The felt like they were new. No pits and they looked real good. The best part is the stuff cost 4.98 per quart. Now, everthing that I see that has rust starting or developed I spray with this stuff. I will go back and repair the serious stuff latter but I feel like at least the rust has stopped where I spray it for now.
