My new beach buggy project appears to be in need of some rust proofing.

Are you gonna sand blast or grind down the rusty areas before using POR-15?
The reason I'm asking, I am thinking of doing the same thing.
I also looked into a product called Rust-Bullet but I don't think it's as abrasion resistant as POR-15.
Are you gonna top-coat the POR-15 with their black top-coat or leave it gray?

Check some of the local auto supply shops that cater to your autobody shops. Some of these carry the POR lines.

I have a fender that is starting to rust. I am going to chuck a wirebrush in the cordless drill, run it over the rust and see if the fender falls apart. If it does not, I'll POR15 it, topcoat it using Krylon in some similar color and maybe splurge for some Krylon clearcoat. The goal it is slow the rust, not repair it.

The vehicle is silver metallic.

Paint Over Rust

It's great stuff it the metal is not too far gone. Just paint and krylon over it. The rest of the bumper mounts will rust out before the POR15 treated parts will.

Hey Chum, I've used both products and found the Rust-Bullet to be more user friendly in terms of user parameters i.e. temperature, humidity, etc. The POR Chassis Coat is a great top coat product. It's hard as stone, yet doesn't chip or discolor. I have not put the Chassis coat over Rust bellet, but that could make a great combo.

I couldn't find it locally, so I ordered it right from their site... got it in two days.

Make sure you use the Metal Ready first, let it dry thoroughly, then apply the POR-15. The Metal Ready etches the metal and helps neutralize the rust. I used this stuff on my Jeep's cargo area floor board... it is bullet proof!

Most of the underside was fine... the undercarriage is undercoated. There were a few patches I had to install in some rusted out areas, so the areas around the cutouts I cleaned off the undercoating and applied the POR-15. I also applied it to the underside of the sheetmetal patches before installing them. They were small patches, so I just pop riveted them in place. I then re-undercoated the patched areas underneath.

On the inside, after the POR-15 was dry, I coated the floorboards with Herculiner Bed Liner. It ain't gonna rust anymore!
