I did the underside of my sammurai last fall. 1Qt did the inside of the front clip, the floor pan and the rear whell wells with 1 coat. The directions call for 2 coats and a top coat.
the surface needs to be clean and free of oil, grease & undercoating. This stuff does not come off of skin! or driveways I did this at my dads place (more room) and he still has spots on his drive where it dripped.

Would that include paint (undercoating?)? And Im guessing every last spec of rust?

Your "supposeed" to prep like you would for any other paint job, I power washed and then sprayed it down with simple green. So far it's holding up ok.
it's meant to go over rust and seal it, just take the loose/flaky stuff off first. you would have to remove the undercoating i'm sure, nothing but dirt ever sticks to that stuff.

Cool, I was thinking about using some of that on my dads Ranger this summer (it's almost 10 years old and virtually rust free, want to keep it that way), but some is starting to show up. I wanted to make sure that if I sealed a bit of rust underneth It wouldn't just keep growing.

I know it prevents rust but I didn't know if it was supposed to be rust free in the first place.

I did some searching too and found this:

PDF of application info!

ALSO:

POR 15 home page - TOP BAR > Products > "Primer, Paints & Coatings" > (pick your poison)

This stuff looks really good..

I did spray everything I could with the por-15 metal ready after pressure washing it. Eastwood.com is the only other place I found with a similar product. the prices are about the same.

So you sprayed the pour15 on instead of brushing it. did you have to have a special sprayer for it?

a friend of mine brushed it onto a motorcycle frame when he did a resto. looks really nice, actually leveled itself pretty smooth. If you could cut it and then spray it it would probabley look awesome although the spray gun sounsds like it might be junk afterwards

Has anybody tried the Rust Encapsulator from Eastwood? I've bought a lot of stuff from them and its all been very good. There is a wright up on a comparison of there stuff to por 15. Hope this helps.

Well as far as the deals. I deal with a paint shop here in Ferndale and get good deals on things so Ill see what it cost through them and post it up. Thats how I found out about it cuz im looking for something tuff but looks good to protect against rock chips and this is waht the guy recomended to me. The only thing I wonder is if it is a urithane base or something else
