Frame Paint?

Okay Ive been trying to clean my frame on my 81 CJ5 before I put my tub back on.

I dont want to strip this thing down to bare metal, but I want to get it as spotless as possible and painted before Tub goes on. I keep having surface rust pop up in spots through the primer.

Any suggestions on chemicla to use that can help me clean this thing?

Also looking for best primer and Paint to use.

Dave

Easy - get a can of POR15 and coat the entire frame with it. That frame will NEVER rust again....

agreed, strip it down as much as possible, clean it up and then "por" it on. I plan on doing the same thing after much research and posting here.

Okay POR15, where can I get it? auto shop? or do I need to look in a specialty shop?

Is POR15 a spray? or do I brush it on?

Do I primer first? or is POR15 a paint and primer, or is it just a Primer?

Can I use the POR 15 on the axles as well? Or should I go with a primer and paint there?

You can get POR15 for www.quadratec.com , I'm sure there are other places. Ask around at local autobody shops as well.

You can use a brush to apply it. Wear gloves, this stuff is like permanent marker on your skin.

Just apply it right on the frame, no primer is necessary. You'll totally understand once you put it on, it's like a rock. Take a piece of metal or something and try it on it first so you can see what it looks like.

Yes, you can put it on your axles as well.

Thanks for the info. Going to look into getting this by this weekend for painting.

Anyone used this on the underbody? I was going to undercoat with Speedliner but maybe POR15 is the way to go.

Dave

More pix coming soon...

I don't see why not, but I would imagine that you would want to pop out your drain plugs in the tub so you don't coat them over with this stuff.

try the rust encaspulator from the eastwood company. http://www.eastwoodco.com/
I have had good luck with this and it is uv resistant so no top coat if you desire. the stuff is red brown color.
thanks rusty

I just painted my 82 CJ7 frame today with POR15 and it came out great. I did buy and applied the metal ready primer to the frame even though the frame was sandblasted. Once the POR15 was tacky on the frame I took a couple of black spray bombs and top coated the whole frame. I hope it resists chips and scratches as well as everyone says it does. I use to use Hammerite paint on the other CJ7's I've done but the paint chipped easily. Judging by the results so far its POR15 for me from now on.
