Frame Paint...

Will implement paint do the job that frame paint is made to do? Anything I should be looking for in particular?

That should do a good job. I'm think about herculining mine or something like that when I'm done building it. I might look into that as well. I'm going to end up having to paint it this winter when it's cold so brushing/rolling instead of spraying so I can keep the garage doors down as much as possible.

Cool, I looked at Herculine because of the POR-15 rust inhibitors in it but I didn't like the idea of the texture. I primed it with rust inhibiting primer last night and I will get paint on it today. I'll let you know how it comes out. Thanks

Using a bedliner(Herculine) is a bad idea. If your frame cracks, you probably won't ever see it since the coating is kinda rubberish.

Implement paint is great for painting frames. It is harder than normal automotive paint. I used black implement paint about 10 years ago to paint my utility trailer. I still looks great.
