What store did you see POR-15 in? I can't find it anywhere but online.

I have used POR15 on frames and other parts. It's great stuff. Powdercoating is best for bumpers or an epoxy based paint if you want to shoot it yourself is good. I touch up my bumpers and rock rails with POR15 after a day in the rocks. Try it out, if you don't like it, you can always sandblast and powdercoat later.

I used the POR-15 on the bumper BESRK sold me - it worked great, and the kit had everything I needed (etch, rinse, and coating) to do the job. Looks great.

I also bought some UV coat, but didn't put it on. The POR on my bumper has faded where the sun hits (but not under the tire lol). I will probably use the UV coat before winter.

For the record, I dropped my trailer hitch (that slides into the receiver) onto the bumper about three weeks after I mounted it. The powder coat on the hich chipped on the corner that it landed on, but it didn't leave a mark on the bumper.

I like it!

i do sandblasting/soda blasting, and I can tell you it doesn't come off. Or it will if you take off enough metel. Remember, POR-15 BONDS and embeds into the metal. However, thats what you want

I used it on my entire frame, ground to bare metal, etched with metal ready, and it holds up beautifully. Also used it on my flat fenders.

Prep: ALL oil and grease MUST be removed, or it'll peel. Use Acetone or similar pait prep solvent.

Where exposed to direct sun, topcoat with literally anything; I used 1 dollar a can rustoleum on the fenders.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

I used it on the frame and wheel wells of a dodge power wagon and it peeled everywhere the sun hit it. The frame held up really well though. It was a long time ago so they may have changed it up a little...


Overall, I really liked the stuff.
