Frame Paint
 
I'm planning on using chassis saver to paint my frame and the bottom of my tub. Should I spay it or roll/brush it on?
Or are there better alternatives to chassis saver?
Any input would be appreciated.

I have had super good luck with duplicolor spray on bedliner. It's pretty cheap and easy to spray. Tough as nails once it cures.

On an added note consider this for the inside..

I just used a paint brush with my chassis savor, itll even itself out as it dries. Spraying on is nice if u have the room and tools, I just didn't have the room to do it.

I'm not sure what I'm doing yet. Spaying would be more convenient, but rolling/brushing would be a tad less messy.. :p

I just bought a gallon of Chassis saver and S8 reducer. I intend to spray it, but am on the fence. If Chassis saver is anything like POR 15, it has a Midas touch, but instead of turning everything to gold it turns everything black forever. I worry that it will destroy my paint gun. I have been tossing the idea up of buying a cheap spray gun just for this job.

Anyone here get their frame galvanized (hot dipped)? I wish I'd have thought to do so before putting the two coats of por15 and a coat of tractor paint on. On topic I used a brush, tried a roller but it's really not much better and you still need the brush for all the corners and brackets anyways.

95 yjs came galvanized, frame and body. If u have the money to do all that then get it powder coated. Powder coat will last much longer than galvanizing does from my experience.

It's also great if you do happen to chip it off. Just scuff and hit the spot. Half my jeep is done in that stuff. :)

this is the exact reason I did my entire Jeep in the stuff...of course I painted over the exterior of the tub in rustoleum safety orange as well...just to be a bit more colorful :D

I sell a lot of Chassis Saver, the local school bus mechanics love it. It won't damage a paint gun if you clean your gun properly per the instructions right away. If you brush it on you won't need to buy the reducer at all, but make sure you put some plastic wrap over the top of the can before you put the lid on if you have any left otherwise it will basically seal itself and you won't get that lid off. Also you will need to topcoat the stuff if it is anywhere the sun will hit it. The sun doesn't decrease the strength or quality but will fade it to a grayish color.

devoX13 05-25-2013 10:23 PM

Thanks for the info! Would you recommend spaying or brushing it on? It'll be on the frame and underbody so no sun hppefully haha

XJ93 05-25-2013 10:54 PM

Personally I would brush it on. Even though it is a bit more time consuming it's less mess, you won't have to buy the reducer, and you can be sure you hit everything with a good coat. If you are doing the frame and underbody brush would really be better anyway.

I Just did rustoleum on the back and tailgate. Super easy to do, worst part was roughing up the paint.
