I want to see how your frame turns out. I am doing my frame this summer and am torn between POR 15 which did a great job on my driver side floor pan and Chassis Saver. Your question about getting POR into the bolt holes is something I would have asked too.


When I was 20 I knew everything, when I was 30 I knew something, at 40 I know nothing!

I second the soft earplug method for threaded holes and paint.

I also think you're batcrap crazy for attempting to stop all that rust! I run away from rust

Even if they don't pull right out easy, you can poke through with a screwdriver or just screw the blt in the remaining foam in the cracks and it will clean it out for you.
Man, that's expensive for those. I get mine at Lowe's....100 for like 15 bucks.
Great idea though!

For those that care, this photo shows mine after a complete cleaning and acid wash....followed by POR-15 2 coats and a cap coat of Chassis Coat Black. The D30 was POR-15 2 coats.







I was very happy with the finish. Glare doesn't help it, but you get the idea.

LET IT CURE after the chassis coat for about a week. Day 2-5 will be dentable with a finger nail pushed into it. Day seven will break your finger.

Axles and bolts and springs....Oh My!

My experience with applying POR15 to my M36's frame, is mixed. It was sand blasted, and washed with the POR pre-paint chemicals, but the POR15 has pealed off any place the frame was in clean smooth condition. Where there was rust and pitting, the POR has stuck and stayed.

Don't bother with POR-15. Use Rust Bullet... much better product.

Okay,

Finally some serious progress today. Man was it nice here. Worked the whole day on the jeep. The frame is all painted with por 15. It looks 100 times better. I'm very happy man today. Finished the last coat of paint right when the sun went down. Finished just in time.

I'll post yall some pics of the frame once I have the axles painted too

Thanks for reading

I couldnt resist showing you guys some before and after pics of the frame. I am really happy with the way it turned out. Hopefully this stuff will last.

Today was 80 degrees in chicago. Some serious motivation for me to get this thing in driveable condition ASAP. I want to use this for summer time.

I will be following to see your progress, we're picking up our 91 YJ in the morning. I don't think she needs as much as you're doing but it'll be interesting to watch just in case!

thanks,we got her home and are very happy with it. I've stripped out the carpets & cleaned up the interior while the hub did some work under the hood. We had a semi-productive day considering it was raining.
BTW, my husband is lovin the avatar
