Frame work

Frame of my new jeep is solid with no cracks, but being from ohio it sure is rusty. Any suggestions, of products for getting the rust down to bar metal and coating it. Or would it just be easier to find a local joint to do the work?

POR-15 i heard is great. You don't even actually have to sand it down, just knock of the chunks of rust and slap her on.

I purchased some and will be putting it to the test some time during my swap that I am working on now.

You might look into powder costing it. I know, I know that sounds real expensive but I had my frame and skid plate sand blasted and powder coated for $375.00. I am not sure I could have bought the material to do it and damn sure would not been able to pay the labor. Just a thought and might be worth checking into.

Both of those suggestions sound great and I will be looking into the product as well as looking for a local vendor that does the sandblasting and powder coating.

Thx

I use a combination of a flap wheel and a wire brush mounted on my angle grinder. Start with the wire brush to knock off the bigger chunks, then swap to the flap wheel (overlap sanding disk) to clean up the area to make it nice and smooth. Then, like others have said POR15 is fantastic. Goes on easy and makes a tough, good looking, surface.
