POR15 works great IF the proper prep work is done. A lot of people don't degrease & use the metal etch and have poor results.

I'm a big fan of www.eastwood.com internal & external frame coating. Good stuff.

I just used eastwoods internal frame coat on my lj, and sem rust paint on the outside, both products are good. Whatever you use, cheap or otherwise, the more cleaning and prep the better the results.

I did the degreasing and etching and POR still peels. It works well for a while (probably the longest) but what ends up happening especially on the frame is because you can't paint the inside, the rust will work its way under the paint starting at the holes. Several years later you can start pulling it off. That said I guess if you make it a yearly thing that you will be touching up and fixing you can probably stay ahead of it. But otherwise that stuff is hard!

x2 on the Eastwood Internal Frame Spray. I use it on the inside of my frame rails on my Charger and POR15 on the outside.

X whatever on the internal frame coating from Eastwoods. Good stuff.

I used chassis saver on the outside a few years ago. Some places peeled and are starting to rust again. I'm going to sand them down and go with SEM this time.

Building my junk with more junk, so Im always on the look out for more junk....Free to cheap preferably. :D

I may tape up the frame holes with foil tape and paint over again with SEM. Seems like keeping junk out of there is a good idea, especially the holes in front of the back tires. Just a thought.

And that would be a bad thought. One thing with water is it is persistent and will get in and when you block off you don't allow it anywhere to go, this build up humidity and you would probably find it rotting out that much faster.

I've been using tractor and implement paint for years. Primarily Valspar from TSC.

I wouldn't tape all the holes, in fact I like the idea of extra drain holes in some key spots. I just think the large round holes in front of the rear tires could be blocked off, especially on the outside of the frame, because they are in a spot to pick up stuff thrown from the tires.
