    Hey Guys,

    My 06 TRD is starting to show some surface rust on the main frame...Looks ugly.. I have been touching it up with 3M spray on undercoating.. But that doesn't last.. Is there any spray on product out there that will coat and prevent? I remember the old wax base Zee coat back in the day that was great stuff.... Any of that in a spray can?
    Or recommendations... Thanks

    Sand it off with a purple 3M disc, then apply some POR-15. Bye bye rust.

    I've noticed some rust on my frame. I was wondering if a shop could do a little sand blasting and painting. I would hate to not eliminate it completely, and then cover it up with paint.

    I used a product on a commercial fishing vessel in a place where I couldn't do any sandblasting: PPG Amerlock 400. I scraped and scraped and then mixed up a batch (it's epoxy-based, marine for steel), and then applied with a brush. If I could put my truck up on a lift and spend some time with a rust converter, then hit it with Amerlock 400, I think I would do okay.

    ...but I haven't heard of POR-15. That looks interesting too.

    If you want bomb proof protection, go with RUST BULLET. I used POR 15 a few years ago while restoring my FJ40 and even with good prep work, the rust eventually bled through. It's not a bad product, I just don't trust it. Rust Bullet is AMAZING. You can paint over an un-prepped piece of steel and it will neutralize and permanently coat over the rust. ONLY issue is, it comes in gray...and as far as I know, nothing but. If it were me...RUST BULLET with a black spray over top.

    POR 15 isn't cheap but its dam well woth it. I did the entire underbory on my early bronco with it, running gear and all. The onlt thing I've heard bad about it is that it will fade after long sun exposure. I can scratch or chip it off. Very heavy duty stuff!!!

    Dont use undercoating. Try a wax srpray, Amsoil offers one. Use paint or Rust Bullet.
