  • Por-15?

    I was looking at maybe using por for my floors, innner panels, etc. instead of normal laquer primer and a flat black enamel, like usual. I've never used it, I've heard and I believe someone on here siad they hated it, don't rember the reason though. Just wondering if anyone has used it and how it flows, and looks after it's dried. I know it dries hard as shit though, not sure if I like that idea. My project will be an everyday driver to a point, I wont race to the garage if it's raining but I will hopefully not take it out mudding either..

    You can brush it on the the brush streaks disappear. It will get hazy and oxidize if its in the sun light.They have a pattern to follow,Marine clean then phosphate coating then POR15.Once you open a can put wax paper under lid before you close it as you will never get it open if any paint is in the grove and will dry out if there's any air in can on top of paint. Buy small cans for less waste. Check their web site for more info.I used it on a pair of inner fenders of my '77 Ford LTD II. They have been painted regular black over the POR 15 and dirty now but this was 13 years ago or so.

      I've used it on the inside of fenders and under my cars. One small can covers a very big area when you paint it on with a brush. popcorn]

            I've used POR-15. says on can "not to shake", stir gently. pour out onto another container what you'll use, don't pour left over back in can. dries very hard. they say you can apply over rusty metal. I usually apply over sandblasted metal. not everybody has a sandblaster, but I think it's the best surface for a product like POR-15. Chassis Saver is the same thing, a little cheaper , seems a little watered down compared to POR-15. just a tip- before putting lid back on pour a dab of mineral spirit of enamel reducer in can, creates a barrier- air activates POR-15, the thinner will help it last longer, also before putting lid back on , put a piece of plastic between can and lid. makes it easier to get lid off.

                  It comes off after about a week

                  You can spray it as well with a little reducer but Id use a cheap gun. If it will be exposed to sunlight just use the top coat after the base. Its a quality product, over priced but good

                    at athe shop we used to use the nitrogen/co2 gas blanket from the welder and put a 10 second hit of it in the can before we sealed it up ( cracked the knob on the tank so a small bit of it flows softly out the bottle not spraying paint everywhere ,we use a hose to guide it into the can ) , it never hardened ,and always wipe out that damn lip with there solvent before sealing . ( got to try the wax paper bit .) I have a 5 year old can of gray thats permanately sealed that I have to cut open and transfer to another can ....[frustrated]

                        Hmm... sounds like Herculiner without the chunky bits.

                            I think I'm just going to por-15 the back of the new panels like the rear inner wheel wells, inner trunk, and the floor pan. I really don't like the idea of how hard the crap gets but I do want it to be protected.. Reminds me of spray on bed liner, which I know a few people have used that but no thanks. I'm going to paint the tops of the inner fenders, inside the engine compartment, I don't really want to put por on them, then I'm stuck with that look after it dries.

                              I sprayed my wheel well with it along with the frame and under body. It looks good to me

                              As for what to remove it with once its on your skin, I prefer time in a bottle. Works great and is really cheap
