Painting Underside

I've seen a few guys take off the rust and paint the underside. Just curious for anybody that has done it, what method did you use? Wire brush and light sander?

Yep. Wire brush, sand paper, wire wheel on a grinder - whatever you want.

Works great:

i started by using a torch at a low setting and warming the undercoating. using a putty knife i scraped all that off. then went back over it with a wire wheel to get the rest. then i por-15 everything, i mean everything. it is self leveling so when dry looks like it was sprayed on. did the engine bay area the same way. a lot of work but, when completed you will be glad you did it. sorry i have no pics. they all went with the new owner as proof of what was done. best way to document your restoration job is with pics. they don't lie.

I just did mine over the weekend. Mainly used a wire wheel on an angle grinder and cleaned with a painter prep. I used all Eastwood brand paint. Did the whole inside of the unibody w/ eastwood internal frame coating, really nice product w an extension hose to get in all hard to reach places. Then I used eastwood rust encapsulator on the outside areas. Dropped the spare tire and did all up I'm there too. Highly recommend if you're looking for a good product that lasts!

Thanks guys, I think this is my Fall project. Should I look at any specific type of heat resistant paint?
