Also, POR 15 needs humidity to dry - it won't dry in a good, ventilated, climate-controlled paint booth...

All paints are bad for you to breath in, even the new Waterborn stuff. But anything that needs or uses a hardner will mess you up over time.

POR 15 works great but it has to be coated with either paint or clear coat. it's UV sensitive, it'll break down pretty quick if it's not sealed. And it's quite expensive

Just go with farm implement paint, reasonably priced and it'll last a lot longer than rattle can/por 15. I mean if you think about it, it's made to be on something that's going to be in mud/shit/crud all day everyday

You dont need to prime unless you took it to bear metal.
But if you want a good base to prime it with look at an epoxy primer. Costs is high but that stuff is wonderful.

TSC implement paint is oil based and takes a long time to dry. Buy the hardener for it, it will speed up the drying time and thin it a little. Goes on thick but flows out well.

go to finish master and get some slicksand for the primer it is a poly based primer, stupid simple to spray, very tough and a gallon of it is CHEAP. once you sand that down, get some imron or if you want save some coin get some centari or what ever it is and then clear it with imron 500S If you use the 500S clear it is a very tough durable finish and easy to touch up. Buy doing this it allows you to skimp a little on the base coat since the strength is in the clear. I use it all the time at work in the marine industry if it will stand up to salt water, and insane high temps of dark huls on the water getting splashed with cold water with out issue then I think your more then good on the jeep

My uncles used to paint dumpsters with implement paint when they had their dumpster business.

I sprayed mine with implement paint. It has thinning instructions on the can, I had to thin it a little more than it said to get it to flow out of the gun nice. I used a little extra hardener as well to try and make the surface tougher.

I will say that after the first time wheeling with it, it was just as scratched as normal paint.

Chassis Saver, pretty much the same stuff as Por 15, but a lot cheaper.

i took a gallon can of Rustoleum mixed it with paint thiner till it was thin enough for a paint gun and sprayed my old truck. Then after about 7 or 8 coats of clear coat it looked good it was fairly durable, and it was very easy to touch up.

it was a lot haha but i dont like painting and i wanted it to have a good protection against dirt and scratches, it was a full time trail rig. normally all you need is 2 or 3 coats, buff it out and it will shine
