More on Frame Clean up?

Contacted the guys at POR 15 found that in order to use this stuff I need to take frame down to bare metal.

1/4 of the frame has been stripped down, but was trying to prevent stripping entire frame. Engine and transmisson are still mounted and I have no way to move frame for sandblasting.

At this point I have 2 options I guess.

Sand and grind the entire frame by hand or is there a better solution?

Find a different frame paint that does not require bare metal to bond too that will prevent surface rust spots from reforming, any ideas?

Ive been using a grinder with 120 grit soft abbrasive pads to strip now. Its working pretty good although hard to get in some tight places, and the pads last for about 2 feet of frame each so It might get costly this way as well. Any other suggestions for stripping?

Thanks
Dave

That guy is smoking crack.
Do your best to clean it up with a grinder, wire wheel, wire brush, whatever.... and then coat it....

Don't sweat it.

Okay so the POR 15 will adhere to old frame paint if its cleaned up? Anyone else try this?

I guess its worth a shot anyhow.

Thanks
Dave
