RhinoLine the exterior (or Durabak)

i'm buying a cj7 that has ben rhinoed instead of painting it looks realy cool. just make shore you grind off ALL THE RUST if you have any on your jeep or it will be f'ed but other than that it works great no scratches no more waxing and dont have to worry to much about rust after you get it sprayed (i had my chevy 4x4 sprayed) easy to clean and i think it has a lifetime warranty.

I thought that this was supposed to help prevent rust...and slow it down if it exists?

Also, were there any handling issues or other problems from having the entire outside lined?

Pictures please...

Does anyone have any experience with spraying durabak over untreated rust? Does rust continue to spread? What thinner and in what ratios do I add to spray it? Will it hold on paint?
Thanks

as far as i have experienced first hand and heard from others, both are good for protection if put on a nice clean surface. they dont completely stop rust, it will slow it down some (little). i have heard also that they are not extremely porous but that they will absorb some mudd and gunk and its hard to get it complletely clean again! the only things that can be applied to rust and will completely stop it are por 15 and RE.

Well I painted the jeep with white durabak yesterday, looks really good all except the fact that I painted the jeep in the garage and the hood outside in the sun, the jeep dried brilliant white and the hood off white cream. I am going to give the hood another coat in the garage today, Overall I am very happy with the way it looks

I will e-mail you pics when I finish putting it back together. As far as time and difficulty, it took about 6 hours with bondo and sanding for 2 coats. it dries pretty quick, I probably waited about an hour between coats. It was pretty easy I used the roller that comes with it and cut it down to use with a 3" handle. I have never painted a car before but It went pretty easily, just messy.

No I actually ran out, but I think I'm going to repaint it black anyway to break it up a bit
