If you call them and ask, they will often give it to you for $9.99 a can.
Clean the nozzle and tube out with carb cleaner when finished. You can then use it to spray a few coats of paint inside also.

For those of you who used chassis saver, how much did you use to roll it on the frame?

I'm doing the bottom of my tub and fenders in it too. Was there enough left over for that? Or should I just buy and extra quart?

No I think you would need another quart.

Hey JamonJeep did you do both sides of the skid when you painted? What did you do to prep for the paint? I am ready to pull my tub and go to a Fiberglass tub and I am trying to get a good idea of what I need to do to get the frame and plates painted.

I did paint both sides of my tranny and gas skids. Everything was in great shape, just light surface rust in a few spots. I just hit those spots with a wire brush then cleaned everything with soap and water. Once dry slapped on the paint with a 4" brush. Turned out great and I'm happy with it.

Devox13, sorry I am late to the party but I did my frame and skid (sandblasted first) with Chassis Saver and a cheap sponge brush. Also used the Eastwood internal Frame coating that also worked great. I did coat the Chassis Saver with the Eastwood Extreme Chassis Black (as the Chassis saver is not UV stable) Jeep has been back on the road since Oct and I am still very pleased with the outcome. see my build thread for pictures.

Did anyone reduce the chassis saver before rolling or brushing it on? And what rollers or brushes did you use?

There is no need to reduce the Chassis Saver if you are rolling or brushing. The reducer is only needed for spraying.

But should I reduce it if I have any left over?

No, all you will do is shorten it's shelf life. Any left over Chassis Saver can be kept in the can, provided you place plastic wrap over the top before putting the lid on. The ONLY reason to reduce it is to spray it. Once you add reducer anything left over will have to be thrown out.

I had very good results with the inexpensive foam brushes from Lowe's (buy a couple different sizes and toss as soon as it starts falling apart). It covers well and self levels as it dries. I have had good luck with plastic wrap between can and lid, seal tight and reuse the clips to hold the lid in place, and then store it in the refrigerator (or a cool place).
