FYI We are in shorts here... Mid 70's great for painting.
a couple good days soaking in the Texas summer sun, and then good scraper, small pry bar and hammer and lots of patience..

well i used chassis saver after sandblasting it worked good however keep in mind it has no uv protection thats what keeps it soft i think anyway I had my frame out all last summer and had to recoat but it is easy to use and looks good Tip1 use the rubber gloves and a respirator of course that paint took 6 days to come off

I used a wire wheel, Eastwoods and Rustolem for a topcoat. Now if I get chips a $4.00 rattle can will keep it looking good.

I have only powdercoated one frame and suspension parts, a 34 Ford coupe. I will not powercoat a frame again for the reasons stated in the previous threads; it is hard and will chip and repairs never look that good. I think powercoating is fine for some things, just not a frame that will be on the road unless you call being on a trailer on the road.

Rustolem does not fade over time?
