Hi,

thanks for your interest on my project.

In Germany things are not so easy:
Firstly getting all the wonderful parts - secondly the german technical vehicle inspection... you need for every not stock component a certicate

But just to share with you my goal.
That's how it should look like when I'm finished. Bright orange, but without any chrome just black...
Found this picture via Google, maybe anybody knows the Jeep.



Have a great Day

Hi folks,

I'm totally pissed. I hate POR 15.

I wanted to install the clamps for fuel and brake lines today and realized that the POR 15 on the frame seems to have loosened.

After scratching a little bit to become sure... I got this result :







I don't know what went wrong. The frame was blasted, cleaned with Marine Clean, prepared with Metal Ready and I even wore cloves to avoid any "grease" from hand and fingers. The POR 15 was orderd new and the temparature was ok. So everything should have been fine

At the moment I feel totally down and could give it to the junk yard


Keep u updated how things are going on....


Cheers

Ive read that you don't want a clean surface for por15, yo may want to check inot eastwood chassis black, or something similar to that.... really sucks that you will probably have to remove all that por.....

Ive never seen Por 15 do that before. My friend used bed liner on his. Its pretty tough looking. Im very jealous of your beer. I miss the good beer Germany has to offer. I plan on making another trip over. Maybe we can go wheeling? haha

Cherokee Creto-This is my cherokee... there are many like it but this one is mine, I will love my cheroke form the day of ownership untill the day it dies, I promise to modd it and beat it after said mods... i promise to treat all other cherokee owners as family even though they are complete strangers.... and promise to jeep on forever

Hi,

had contact with my POR dealer. Seems it was my own fault

After using Metal Ready, I did not clean with water. I just used a cloth to clean the frame, because I didn't want to get him wet gain.

The reason for loosening of the POR seems that MR sets a phosphate layer. If this is not removed properly it can create gas which loosens the POR.

Anyway, I will now use Brrontho Korrux which is easier to handle.

Will see what happens...


Cheers

Very nice build. Sorry to hear about the POR-15 peeling. I'm still trying to figure out which chassis paint to go with myself. I'm also going with the 2.5" OME lift, eventually. Don't loose hope. Keep up the good work.

Hi,

... needed some time to continue.

Blasted the frame once again and used this time Brontho Korrux 3in1, hope this will work now.

Here is the new status.





Now I can continue with assembling once again.

were the axles and other parts also coated the POR15 as well? Any fear of those parts needing to be re-done?
